Donations are sought regarding the Jimmy Bissonnette Memorial Food Drive, benefiting Groceryland. A special event will be held Sunday, April 23, at 4 p.m. at Little Jim's, 3503 N. Halsted St.
Groceryland ( which has operated for almost 30 years ) is a grocery center, associated with the Heartland Alliance, supporting the health and nutrition needs of people experiencing chronic illness.
Bissonnette was a manager at the gay nightspots Buck's Saloon ( now closed ) and Little Jim's.
Volunteers will accept food as well as household and personal-care items.
