Our August volunteer spotlight is Dave Phillips! ⭐

"I have lived most of my life on Chicago's north side, except to attend University of Illinois. When I learned that food insecurity is a big problem here, I began volunteering at Oakdale in 2014. Six years ago, I joined my friend Derek in picking up donated food from various grocery stores with the van. In June 2019, I added La Casa Norte to my routine. Volunteering has been a fun and rewarding way to give back to my community. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, biking and kayaking. Also, hearing live music and traveling when there's not a pandemic." #WeLoveOurVolunteers

Ways to help...Lakeview Pantry
Does Lakeview Pantry have a Wishlist on Amazon so donors will know exactly what to send? Also, do you want coupons from the Sunday paper? Since so many people are “sheltering in place” and afraid to go out, it might be helpful to create a Wishlst and promote it online so people can contribute the most important items. Thanks.
Do you plan on giving away hams for Easter?
Is your other location still open?
Lakeview Pantry will be starting a new therapeutic group called Navigating Unemployment. It is geared towards people who are experiencing negative emotions or experiences related to unemployment. It will start Tuesday October 22nd at 4pm. Clients can walk in for the first session. Feel free to share this with anyone who might be interested.
Did you spend any time at the Jane Addams Center or another Hull House neighborhood center before 1980? If so, please consider joining this group. Do you think you may know someone who did? If so, please consider sharing this group on your page. Thank you! (Admins, apologies if not allowed!)
