Service Day Reminds Us of the Meaning of Holidays
At The Bensman Group, our employees have made it a holiday tradition to volunteer at the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) distribution center in Park City, Ill., to help sort food headed to food pantries across northern Illinois. On Nov. 3, we sorted and packed 875 pounds of potatoes, providing 729 meals to people throughout northern Illinois.
About 600,000 people in Northern Illinois rely on food pantries and meal programs to help feed their families. Working with a network of food pantries and donor partners, the Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food for more than 71,500 people in a 13-county area each week.
Helping those who need it can be a good way of reminding us all of the true spirit of the holidays, whether you volunteer in a structured fashion or just make a point to reach out to the people around you with kindness. And, as always, we at The Bensman Group wish you and all of yours a happy and healthy holiday season!
