No. IL Food Bank Volunteering – Nov 19; sign-up by 11/12

 Tuesday, November 19th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Geneva

Volunteer with us before Thanksgiving!  Last year we were in the bulk room putting gravy packets together that were going into the Thanksgiving dinner boxes for needy families.  By volunteering at NIFB, you’re ensuring families, children, and seniors in our community have the food they need to have a happy holiday season.

We have 8 available slots.  Note: the Food Bank will not take anymore volunteers than we have allotted slots.  If you’d like to join us in this fun event,

  1. Please go to our Sign-up schedule and sign-up to indicate your participation, AND
  2. Print and complete the Volunteer Consent Form and bring it with you on the 19th.  See important instructions on this form.

We need to forward our list of names to the NIFB by Tuesday, November 12th.  Look forward to seeing you there.
