New Trier Township Social Services: FOOD PANTRY PALS NEEDED


About this Opportunity

  The Township is looking for two hours, one day per week for six weeks* at our FOOD PANTRY.  You pick the day of the week and time slot: from 11AM-1PM or 1PM-3PM. We have returned to in-person shopping at the Food Pantry and are in need of volunteers  to greet and walk clients through the process.  It may include simply being a welcoming presence and providing minimal clarification or it might be to help an elderly person or someone English as a second language navigate the shelves based on our shopping criteria.

The positive impact on the well being of fellow neighbors will be evident the moment you join our volunteer core.  Food Pantry clients  have identified the Food Pantry as an important way to live without the stress of how to manage food amidst various challenges or hardship.

Please contact Brian Leverenz, our Community Services Director who runs the Food Pantry with questions or to fit into a volunteer slot.  Training can happen the first day you volunteer and is straightforward.   We are still requiring masks at the Township.  Contact: Brian Leverenz at bleverenz@newtriertownship.com or 847-446-8203.
