I'm sorry for the late notice, but we just finalized the arrangements for the June food drive. The upcoming food drive is set for June 25, 2011 at the Jewel in Skokie, located at 9449 N. Skokie Boulevard.
Volunteers are needed from 9:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. and 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:
9:30 – 11:00
11:00 – 12:30
12:30 – 2:00
2:00 – 3:30
3:30 – 4:30
The last shift includes assisting in unloading the food at the Food Pantry.
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.

I am in an hour long comedy called Skirmishes, which is a series of skits dealing with the battle of the sexes. It takes place on Wednesdays in June starting June 8, going until June 29, at 8 p.m. So there are a total of 4 shows. Tickets are only $12.
Says Fran: This is a place to share ideas, ask questions, or bring up challenges you face trying to make your business more sustainable (green). Every business owner can do something large or small to make a difference.
