PADS is an organization committed to ending and preventing homelessness in DuPage County. We will prepare and serve a lunch meal for 35-65 people. To prep and cook an entire meal, we can use anywhere from 8-10 volunteers.
This organization collects new and gently worn shoes to be shipped to adults and children all over the world, who do not have shoes and have had a natural diaster, such as the Tsunami. We will be cleaning shoes, sorting and boxing shoes.
They are opened from 10am to 3pm on Saturdays. You do not have to stay the entire time.
From Chinese Garden, as usual. Talk to catering manager. Tell him that your budget is $100 and he'll probably give you a discount and make the cost $100 even. Sweet!

This is a service project for the Humanitarian Service Project ( http://www.humanitarianservice.org ). We put everything needed for a child's birthday in a wrapped shoe box or gift bag. The box or bag is then given to a child living in poverty so they can have a happy birthday!
Note: Prior to 2014, this was Birthday-in-a-box.
If you have shoe boxes to donate or scissors we can borrow for the project, please bring them to in person. Thanks!
