On the morning of Saturday, April 22, 12 volunteers from DSHRM joined forces with 18 volunteers from other organizations to pack and sort over 9,000 pounds of food at the Forgotten Harvest warehouse in Oak Park.
While we all sorted and bagged potatoes that were rescued from grocery stores and restaurants we had a great time getting to know one another!
Thank you to everyone who joined us. It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning.
The event was organized by the DSHRM Government and Community Affairs Committee. Look for announcements in the Weekly Digest for future volunteer opportunities.
Thanks to our volunteers Kathy Gass, Gail Sanderson, Christine Blauvelt, Ola Salako, Matthew Blauvelt, Joy Goberville, Hannah Costello, Tom Hoy, Eileen Ross, Steve Goodrich, Valerie Murphy-Goodrich, and not pictured are Gehan Haridy and Maureen Hoy.
