On October 10, 2018, the Will County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division volunteered at St. John Lutheran Church’s food pantry. Spesia & Taylor associates Jake Gancarczyk and Tyler Moore (co-chairmen of the YLD) and Mike Santschi and Jonathan Powell all attended, along with several other members of the Will County YLD.
St. John’s food pantry hosts frequent food drives to support local families in need of assistance. Over the course of two hours, nutritious food was distributed to dozens of families.
According to Santschi: “It’s important to be reminded that there is great need all around us — hunger isn’t limited to southern Africa and the Middle East. You have to do what you can to help those right in front of you, and as an added bonus helping others helps you to remain content and grateful for what you already have.”
The Young Lawyers Division is an organization within the Will County Bar Association that provides lawyers under seven years in practice with outreach, volunteerism, and networking opportunities. If you’re interested in joining, contact Tyler Moore or Jake Gancarczyk today!
