Take the Time to Serve This Season
With the approach of the holidays, there is no shortage of things to think about. But it also can be helpful to take a few moments to think about ways to help others. On the afternoon of Nov. 4, a majority of the Bensman staff volunteered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank distribution center in Park City, Ill., to help sort meat headed to food pantries across northern Illinois.
This is the eighth year that Bensman employees have volunteered at the food bank during the holiday season. This year, they sorted donated meat, processing 9,400 pounds -- or about 7,800 meals worth. Working with a network of food pantries and donor partners, the Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food for more than 71,000 people in a 13-county area each week.
Whether you choose to volunteer in an organized fashion or simply decide to reach out to the people around you with a message of caring -- or both -- we at The Bensman Group would like to wish you and all of yours a happy and healthy holiday season!
