Giving Back at YMCA & Greater Chicago Food Depository Produce Day

01076720

On Friday October 9, staff and attorneys from WWM volunteered to work the YMCA’s Produce Day at Arthur A. Libby Elementary School.  The monthly event is a collaboration between the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, created to bring fresh produce to this area of the city known to be a “food desert”.  WWM joined with YMCA workers and other volunteers in unloading, sorting, packaging and distributing donated produce and other perishable items to the area’s low-income seniors and families.  It was hard but rewarding work and WWM was privileged once again to be assisting the YMCA and GCFD in this worthy cause.
