Be a part of serving the community in our food pantry. Volunteers will help distribute roughly 200 boxes of food to Elgin residents for pick-up at our drive-up Home Goods food pantry held on Saturdays from 9:30am - 11:30am.
The food pantry distribution assistant will help carry already prepared food boxes from the gym down some stairs to put in clients' cars. Please note that this opportunity requires lifting of up to 30 pounds.
