Launching Our Annual Food Drive

Annual Food Drive at Global ResourcesKim checks out the almost full (with four weeks still until Xmas!) Food Drive bins;
the generosity of her coworkers continues to astound her.

We celebrate the holiday season at Global Resources not just with decorations, cards and gifts, but by reaching out to those less fortunate through our Food Drive.  Once again, Kim has organized the launch of this annual event, obtaining donation bins, creating flyers and sending out email blasts.  It is a personal crusade for Kim to help prevent hunger in our community.

Paper bags for the Food Pantry Bags, bags, bags!

This year, working with the Libertyville Food Pantry, she has asked for more than food per the Pantry’s request.  In addition to food, there is a strong need for paper goods (such as tissues, toilet paper, napkins and paper towels), personal care products (shampoo, toothpaste, baby wipes, etc.) as well as recycled paper bags for packing groceries for the Pantry’s clients.
