Ogle County Democrats contribute to food pantries

Ogle County Democratic Committee member David “Skip” Donald delivers a donation to Darlene Shafer, treasurer of the Polo Lifeline Food Pantry.

OREGON – The Ogle County Democratic Central Committee recently donated $800 among eight Ogle County food pantries, an idea that originated during the pandemic to celebrate the holiday season together since in-person gatherings were not possible. The Ogle County Dems have raised more than $3,200 for area food pantries over the past four years.

“I am so proud of our members again this year,” said Committee member David “Skip” Donald. “Helping people is what the Democratic Party is all about.”
