VOLUNTEER CENTER NEWS
If you’re looking for a way to serve food-insecure families at Thanksgiving, we’re here to help. The VC is once again sponsoring our annual community SHARE YOUR BOUNTY Thanksgiving event that will guarantee a “thankful” day for all involved. This year we are encouraging individuals, families, and school and community groups to participate in TWO WAYS, providing much-needed food for low-income and homeless families during Thanksgiving week. Donate a basket of special treats and personal items for families who rely on the New Trier Food Pantry in Winnetka on Monday, November 21st from 9-10am, OR fill a bag with groceries to drop off for the families at Good News Partners in Rogers Park on Thanksgiving morning. Or both!
We’re here to help you. The VC is currently collecting volunteer opportunities for our Annual Holiday Volunteer Opportunities Directory. This listing will be featured on the homepage of our website from Thanksgiving through New Years, and is a valuable resource for volunteers looking to make a difference during a time of particular need.
