Moraine Township Supervisor Mari Barnes has proclaimed Saturday, May 13 as "Family Volunteer Day" in support of the Township's Food Pantry.  Volunteers of all sizes and skills are encouraged to put on their working shoes and offer willing hands, hearts and backs to two satisfying activities.

First is a new "Pantry Plants" garden project, creating a garden to supply the Pantry with fresh produce.  Planting is scheduled to begin at 10 A.M. and will continue until everything is planted at Woodridge Park (south end of Barberry Road, Highland Park).  Anton's in Highland Park is donating supplies, and the Park District of Highland Park is allowing use of their park.  Volunteers are asked to bring their own tools. Rain date for planting is Saturday May 20,10:00 A.M.

The other activity is stocking the shelves at the Township Food Pantry as donated supplies are brought in by U. S. Postal Service workers at the conclusion of their collection drive on May 13.  Help stock the shelves from the Postal Service Food Drive from 1:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M. at the Moraine Township Office and Pantry, 777 Central Avenue, Highland Park.

For more information or to sign up, please call 847-432-3240.
