- Many, many thanks to the nearly 100 tireless volunteers who helped move 126,000 pounds of chicken from three semi-trailers to 80 recipient agency vehicles on Saturday morning, March 18th, at Sunset Foods. Your dedication is inspiring and your efficiency is amazing. We gathered around coffee and donuts at 7 am that morning, began distributing the chicken by 7:30 am and loaded the last agency vehicle at approximately 8:50 am. BRAVO for a terrific effort! Most importantly, we give thanks to the food pantries and soup kitchens and their gracious volunteers who picked up the chicken. You are the folks who serve those in need and we are grateful for all you do.
- Special thanks to the following groups who helped make the event so successful: Sunset Foods, the Northbrook Fire Department, the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce, Waterway Car Wash, UBS Financial and the folks at Penzeys Spices who generously donated pepper to all of the agencies.
- Take a look at the ABC7 Chicago news clip; once again the folks at ABC7 allowed us to shine the light on hunger in our communities and we are thankful for their support and coverage.
- Take a look at the many volunteers who took time out of their schedules to make the event so successful. They even did a little “chicken dance” beforehand!
