*Update*- CWA Local 4250 Community Service Day!On behalf of the hungry men, women and children served by: President Liz VanDerWoude, Secretary-Treasurer Debbie Slimko, Chief Steward Sylvia Chapman, Patricia Spikes, Doc VanDerWoude, Kevin Slimko, Hannah Lawrence and Kayla Decker's hard work, we, Local 4250, would like to thank them for volunteering 3 hours at the Greater Chicago Food Depository on Saturday, August 21st. Because of them someone will be able to eat today.
This past year, over 100,000 volunteer hours were generously donated to the Food Depository by individuals like them. Without their time and efforts, the Food Depository would be unable to provide 119,000 meals a day through over 600 agencies. These agencies, consisting of pantries, soup kitchens and shelters, rely heavily on the 58 million pounds of food they annually distribute.
Today, time is a precious commodity. The time our volunteers spent at the Food Depository testifies not only to their awareness of hunger in our community, but also their desire to help feed hungry people.
