Food for Greater Elgin

Comcast Cares Day 2017 - Elgin, IL

Illinois Community

The organization Food For Greater Elgin recognizes that food is the first step in stabilizing lives. The organization stands as a buffer from individuals and families falling deeper into the social service system and a preventative measure from economic implications in our community. As a Comcast Cares site, the volunteers worked on a variety of projects Including:
Helping with the Saturday food distribution, Exterior clean up and preparation for spring flower planting in front entrance area, cleaning of the Interior / warehouse / freezer, the Building and Installation of five 4’x20’ garden beds and prepping them for planting, conducting a Kids Nutrition table with painting pots and planting seeds craft to take home with them and last but not least the re-design and painting of the kids play room.
