Niles Township Food Pantry needs food and volunteers July 17

This in from Cathy Struzynski...

As you know, donations to the Niles Township Food Pantry are needed now more than ever. To help stock the Food Pantry shelves, a food drive is scheduled for July 17, 2010 at the Jewel in Skokie, located on Skokie Boulevard at Old Orchard Road.

Volunteers are needed from 9:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. We would like four volunteers for each shift. Please let me know your availability for one or more of the shifts and indicate your first, second and third choice for each possible shift. Once I receive responses, I will confirm your scheduled time. The shifts are:

9:00 – 10:30
10:30 – 12:00
12:00 – 1:30
1:30 – 3:00
3:00 – 4:30

The last shift includes assisting in unloading the food at the Food Pantry. We also need another vehicle for transporting the food to the Food Pantry at 4:00 p.m. Unfortunately, the van we use is not available on July 17; please let me know if your vehicle can be used for this purpose.

Significantly more people are using the Food Pantry and our contributions are invaluable. Cynthia Carranza, the Food Pantry Director, is very grateful for our efforts and the food we collect is distributed in just a few days. Volunteering for at least one shift is an easy way to help our less fortunate neighbors. Please respond with your availability, indicating the number of shifts you can cover and your first, second and third choice for each shift.

Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you.
