Sweating for a Good Cause

According to the Mayo Clinic, regular exercise not only helps control your weight and keep fit, it has numerous other positive affects on your mood, energy levels, and sleep cycle. Of course, when that exercise is taking place in our warehouse it has a much larger positive benefit; all the exercise done in our warehouse helps make an impact in the lives of the needy families and seniors we serve.

We want to thank all of our volunteers for exercising both their bodies and hearts to assist us in reaching out to the needy families we are serving this Christmas. We specifically want to acknowledge the groups who came in today to volunteer. A group of 5 from Kohl in Downer’s Grove, a group of 12 students from Midwestern University, Wheaton North Key Club, and a group of four girl scouts from Metea Valley High School. These fantastic groups, and a number of other fantastic volunteers, have generously given their time and energy to help us sort food and toys for the needy families we will be serving tomorrow at our Christmas Offering Distribution. We want to thank all of you for your help in making Christmas special for the very needy families that we serve.
