Donations accepted at the store
Our beloved leader, Pete Kruer, had a heart for helping people. He devoted his life to the service of others and we want to honor his memory by doing likewise. This holiday season, the employees of Rockford Ace Hardware have “adopted” a family who are living in difficult circumstances. So, “For the Love of Pete,” please help us help them – by considering a donation.
A large decorated, wrapped bucket is located in the front of the store to collect items for a local family. The family consists of seven children and three adults:
- Two girls, both aged 8
- Boy, age 5
- Boy, age 7
- Boy, age 10
- Boy, age 13
- Boy, age 15
- Two adult women
- One adult man
We do not have enough details to list any type of clothing sizes, but suggest gift cards may be helpful for the family to select their own clothing. A food basket will be created, so donations of non-perishable items or gift cards to local markets would also make a great addition. ‘
We’ll be collecting items at the store through Sunday, December 18, 2016 and we’ll be delivering them to the family on Friday, December 23.
