Volunteer Needed: Shopping Mom Assistant Coordinator

help-wanted-stampFood For Friends is currently looking for a woman to serve as a Shopping Program volunteer.  We are looking for someone who could volunteer 1-2 hours per week helping less fortunate single mothers.

If you are interested in volunteering a few hours of your time, you would manage the shopping schedule for the moms we sponsor and also shop alongside a mom if there is a need. The majority of the moms reside in Schaumburg and Hoffman Estate area.

Over the years we have developed a special and highly successful shopping program designed to help single moms re-establish their financial foundation.  As part of this program, we partner with different groups who provide counseling and assistance to single moms who found themselves fallen on hard times for a variety of reasons.  For our part, we take these mom’s grocery shopping and pay for their groceries.

We are proud this program!!  It is entering into its 11th  year of service.  Last year Food For Friends provide over $1200.00 dollars financial and grocery assistance each to eight moms from Fellowship Housing.  This past February Food For Friends was chosen as “ Fellowship Housing partner of the year” and received an award at their annual Gala Event.  The moms we serve are so special, and very grateful for our help, conversation and friendship we provide.    Thank you to all the Food For Friends donors who help us sponsor and support single moms and their children.

If you’re a woman and have a heart for single moms, desire to volunteer 1-2 hours a week to assist these moms please contact Ms. Christina Chacon at info@foodforfriends.org.
