Volunteer Opportunity: Northern Illinois Food Bank

1/31/2015, 9:00am - 11:30am at Northern Illinois Food Bank

In an effort to fulfill the precept of “Doing good for others”, and practicing dana paramita – generosity & giving of ourselves – we are beginning to find opportunities for small groups of sangha members to do volunteer work. Projects in the Monroe and the Palatine/Chicago areas will be identified, and interested members and friends can join in.

Volunteers will work from 9:00-11:30AM on Saturday, January 31 at the Northern Illinois Food Bank warehouse in Geneva, Illinois (273 Dearborn Court, Geneva, IL, 60134). We will be sorting food and non-food-items, and boxing them for distribution to area food pantries.

If you would like to join us for this event, please email Ryūzan at: ryuzan@greatplainszen.org
