On March 22, 2024, under the starlit skies at Jonamac Orchard, a remarkable event unfolded – the 2024 Adult Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by Cresswood Shredding Machinery, a local American made industrial shredder and grinder manufacturer. This event wasn’t just about the thrill of finding hidden treasures; it was a testament to the power of community coming together to support a worthy cause.


As part of their ongoing commitment to giving back to the community through Cresswood Cares, Cresswood Shredding Machinery stepped up once again to support Dekalb County Community Gardens (DCCG) by sponsoring this egg-citing event. Just like in previous years, their partnership with DCCG symbolizes a shared dedication to ending hunger, empowering individuals, and fostering community growth.

Armed with baskets and determination, they combed through the facilties of Jonamac Orchard in search of hidden Easter eggs, each one containing the promise of a special surprise.

But beyond the fun and excitement, the 2024 Adult Easter Egg Hunt served a deeper purpose. It provided an opportunity to raise awareness and support for DCCG’s mission. For years, DCCG has been at the forefront of addressing food insecurity in the community, particularly during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic. Through their various initiatives, including the Walnut Grove Vocational Farm, DCCG empowers individuals, educates the community about sustainable food practices, and creates pathways to meaningful work for young adults with special needs.

Cresswood Shredding Machinery’s continued involvement with DCCG extends beyond sponsorship. With their own raised bed community garden at the factory in Cortland, Illinois, Cresswood actively contributes fresh produce to DCCG’s mobile food pantry during the growing season, further solidifying their commitment to making a positive impact on food accessibility in the community.


The 2024 Adult Easter Egg Hunt at Jonamac Orchard was more than just a fun-filled evening; it was a celebration of generosity, compassion, and community spirit. Through their support, Cresswood Shredding Machinery and all participants reaffirmed their dedication to building a stronger, more resilient community where everyone has access to nutritious food and opportunities for growth.

As we reflect on this memorable event, let it serve as a reminder of the profound difference we can make when we come together with a shared purpose. Thank you to our Cresswood team, Jonamac Orchard, and everyone who participated in making the 2024 Adult Easter Egg Hunt a resounding success. Together, we can continue to sow the seeds of positive change in Dekalb County and beyond.
