On November 28, 2018, the Will County Bar Association’s Service Committee provided its members with an opportunity to volunteer at the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s South Suburban Center in Joliet. The Northern Illinois Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and gathers, stores, organizes, and delivers food to pantries across thirteen (13) counties in Northern Illinois.
Over the course of approximately two hours, attorneys, judges, and their families helped the Food Bank’s staff organize, sort, and package a variety of foods for shipment to food pantries the next day.
According to Chris Spesia, the Will County Bar Association President and a Partner at Spesia & Taylor: “This is the first of hopefully many more community service projects sponsored by the newly-created WCBA Service Committee.”
