I am an avid couponer and I love to know that goods I can buy for pennies on the dollar are being shared with those in need. I've been donating to NIFB for 4 years now, and at the end of each month, I gather some of the excess I've been lucky enough to buy and I'm always greeted with a smiling face and a helping hand.
I have previously served as the President of the Board and for the last ten years have coordinated our church's efforts to help NIFB from organizing bi-monthly volunteer opportunities to providing funding from the Deacon's Benevolence Fund at our church. Most recently I am working with NIFB to help get them exposure to the city council where I live as NIFB seeks grant financing for its capital campaign to buld a new facility. There is no organization like NIFB that I am aware of with a better staff or volunteer base to serve its cause.
I see the NIFB trucks all over the suburbs of Chicago. They are a wonderful organization that I have worked with on multiple locations. They are based in the local community and exclusive serve the local community. We can only hope that more donations of food, supplies, and monetary amounts continue to help this organization do such great work
The first time I was involved with The Northern Illinois Food Bank was with our Racing series. Heartland Drag Racing Association did a charity event "Race Away Hunger" to help raise finacial donations for the food bank. The secong time I have been able to help is with Walmart. I work at Plano store 1003 and Walmart is also sending in donations to NIFB. NIFB does and awesome job.
