“Stuff the Pig” Holiday Hams Fundraiser Returns

stuff the pig

The Roselle Police Association's “Stuff the Pig” fundraiser to raise money for holiday ham dinners for residents served by the Roselle United Methodist Church Food Pantry returns again for 2017. In addition to placing “Stuff the Pig” piggy banks at various locations throughout the Village, the Roselle Police Association will auction off five specialty police piggy banks decorated by local artist Rich Keylard as part of the fundraiser. The auctions will take place on E-Bay on November 7, November 14, November 21, November 28, and December 5. Look for links to the auctions on the Roselle Police Department Facebook page.

“Stuff the Pig” piggy banks are currently available to accept donations at the following locations in Roselle: 1913 Restaurant & Wine Bar, Action Lock & Key, Associated Bank, Brunch Café, Central Auto Body, Electri-Flex, Friendly Ford, Harris Bank, Itasca Bank & Trust Co., Langner Eye Care, Lynfred Winery, Mr. A's Restaurant, Roselle Bank & Trust, Roselle Fire Station, Roselle Public Library, Clauss Recreation Center, Roselle Police Station, Roselle Public Works, Sammy’s Mexican Grill, Village Hall, and Wickstrom Chevrolet.

Help the Roselle Police Association spread the word by taking an “action shot” of you making your donation and post it to Facebook with the hashtags #istuffedthepig (I stuffed the pig) or #RoselleILPolice. The Roselle Police Department will share random hashtag posts on its Facebook page throughout the fundraising drive, which runs through the second week in December.

Last fall, over 100 ham dinners were donated to the food pantry for local families in need last year through the Stuff the Pig fundraiser. If the fundraiser generates enough in donations to cover the cost of the ham dinners (complete with beans, potoatoes and onions) requested by the Roselle United Methodist Church Food Pantry this year, the additional funds raised will be donated to the Illinois Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, 100 Club of DuPage, and Stepping Stones for Women of Domestic Violence.
