Serving the World with Green Harvest Food Pantry

24 May

One of the ways that we live out our mission, here at NCC, is to serve with Green Harvest Food Pantry. Jeff Green started this wonderful ministry after the terror attacks on 9-11 because so many people were having a hard time figuring out where they’d get their next meals.

We’re proud of our long-term connection with Green Harvest, and we are looking to take some next steps in how we serve our community in Chicago-land. Right now, Green Harvest has some specific needs. Would you like to be a part of something larger than yourself? If so, this is a great opportunity for you.

The biggest need is consistency. Volunteers come and go…but the ones that make real impact (particularly for themselves) are the ones who commit and serve on a regular basis.

Here is a current list of needs at Green Harvest:

1. Website & Facebook—If you are a social media maven or a web guru, we need your help. Let us know if you can do this twice a month.

2. Database—Green Harvest needs a program that can help them effectively keep track of clients. If you have ideas and want to help implement a program, let me know!

3. Helping clients shop & re-stocking—Green Harvest gives clients dignity, by allowing them to shop for what they WANT. They want each person to have someone to help them shop. If that is something you’d enjoy, let us know. And if you are a task-oriented person, they need your help doing re-stocking of the warehouse.

Here’s what I know: A life lived for others, is a life well-lived. When you serve, you will be blessed.

Join us?

This summer, we’ll be having an ENCOUNTER:GREEN HARVEST night, where you will get a tour of the facilities and you’ll meet Jeff and Patricia, the leaders that make this all happen. Come and see…
