On Saturday, March 9, 2019, the Community Service Committee organized a trip to the Greater Chicago Food Depository with nine volunteers, to help repack bulk fruit for distribution to local shelters, soup kitchens and food pantries.
The annual report from the Community Service Committee, submitted by Jessica LeMar, Co-Chair of the committee.
The committee met once in August 2014 to designate the recipients of our in-kind and monetary donations. At this meeting we also designated members of the committee that would be in charge of taking the lead in organizing the collections for each meeting.
We had our annual meeting in late August to designate the charities that we would give our In-Kind and Monetary donations to. At this meeting we also designated members of the committee that would be in charge of each meeting so that no one member would be overworked. We have done this for the past three years and it seemed to work out very well.
September 2013 Business Meeting: Our In-Kind donation went to “Chicago Cares: Students living in temporary housing” and our Monetary donation of $205.00 went to The American Cancer Society in honor of these listed families (Nordstrom, Denslaw, DeAntoni, and Soldat) all families associated with CALL members.
November 2013 Business Meeting was a salute to our Soldiers and Veterans, Our In-Kind donation went to Safe Haven Shelter and our Monetary donation of $270.00 went to Honor Flight Chicago.
February 2014 Business Meeting: Our In-Kind and Monetary Donation of $292.00 went to The Greater Chicago Food Depository.
May 2014 Business Meeting: Our In-Kind donation went to Sit Stay Read and our Monetary donation of $315.00 went to Blessings in a Backpack.
The Community Services Committee collected over $1,082.00 and boxes of goods that were sent out to these various charities. The Committee would like to thank our wonderful members for their continued generosity.
