OAK PARK RIVER FOREST FOOD PANTRY
February 23, 2011

My family (husband, 14 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter) started volunteering about 9 months ago. There are jobs for all of us to do that are meaningful. Currently my son is old enough to help with distribution of the food and loves feeling needed. My daughter and I often "rescue" food form places and package them for family sized amount. It is a great way to help Th.the community. I hope everyone in this are could help at least once a month! Very organized volunteer program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the clients come to obtain the food.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Maybe find other jobs that would allow 9-10 yr olds help with distribution days

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Distribute food, rescue food, collect food.

My daughter who is 8 has been singing at home for as long as she could talk. While she takes piano lessons, I wanted to expose her to choral music as well. She has been involved for about a year and LOVES it! She has learned TECHNIQUE, rhythm, pitch, and so much more! The instructors are great and really encourage the kids to try new things! I highly recommend it!
