Volunteer

Load the Truck Tuesdays

The fourth Tuesday evening of the month at 7:00 pm we load the truck. Led by a Stock the Shelves coordinator, volunteers meet at the First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette, 600 9th St., in the parking lot on the east side of the church, accessible via the alley. It’s an hour, tops. The more people who show up, the faster it goes. 

Distribution Wednesdays

The fourth Wednesday morning of the month volunteers are needed for set up and distribution at the Indo-American Center, 6328 N. California Ave. Enter in the front. From 8:00-9:00 am, volunteers unload the truck and set up the mini-store. From 9:00-10:30, volunteers guide refugees through, helping them select the items they need. Reloading the truck takes place immediately after distribution ends. Click below to choose dates, locations, hours, full or partial shifts.
