New ALITH Pantry Parking From "Unheard Of" Cooperation
The Algonquin Township Road District brought the paving equipment, the Village of Algonquin supplied the operators and the Village of Lake in the Hills contributed the labor for the new parking lot big enough for 21 cars, said Pantry Manager Sal Maggio. The Pantry had to buy the asphalt but only at cost thanks to a Cary operator.
Regrettably, said Maggio, the lot's probably already too small. "We were seeing about 200 families this Summer," he said. "Now we're up to 364. They keep coming to us for help," said Maggio. "It's unfortunate."
