Volunteer Op: Northern Illnois Foodbank in Park City

Guest Speaker Jen Lesh came to speak to us about opportunities to volunteer at the Northern Illinois Foodbank.

Here is their website.

To signup to volunteer, click on the following link and use the dropdown menu to select the "Park City" Location.  Click on VOLUNTEER and there is a calendar with available dates and hours:

When you drive there, don't be confused - it is in an industrial park.  Also be sure to type in Keller Drive in PARK CITY (not Waukegan).
Wear close-toed shoes, comfortable clothes.  This is an active volunteer opportunity.

Volunteer Opportunity: Gift Wrapping at GLASA

From our SHS alum, Micaela Fedyniak:

We have another BIG event coming up in December happening Saturday, December 19th to Thursday, December 24th (first week you have off, perfect for students) that we need more volunteers for.  It's a Holiday Gift Wrap Fundraiser at Gurney Mills where we are given a table to wrap presents at for the happy shoppers.  We charge per package and are able to keep 50% of the proceeds; it ends up being a pretty good fundraiser for us.  If you could please pass this along to your students or anyone else you think might be interested we are still in need of many volunteers.

Holiday Gift Wrap Fundraiser:
Date: December 19th – 24th 
Location: Gurnee Mills Mall

Please call/text/email if you have any questions about this or other opportunities we have.

Thanks and happy holidays!
