I hope everyone had a great summer and is ready for the fall season. After several scheduling difficulties during the summer, we are hopeful to have regularly scheduled food drives for the Niles Township Food Pantry this fall. Cynthia Carranza, the Director of the Food Pantry, reports that the need for food from the pantry keeps increasing and donations to the Niles Township Food Pantry are needed now more than ever.
To help stock the Food Pantry shelves, a food drive is set for September 25, 2010 at the Jewel in Niles, located at 8203 W. Golf. 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 (via firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
The need is great, the time commitment relatively small and the appreciation for our efforts from the staff at the food pantry is gratifying. You can be a part of this project to help our neighbors by volunteering for at least one shift. 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.
