National Day of Service

The Chicago Chapter of the Loyola University New Orleans Alumni Associationinvites you to serve with fellow alumni and friends.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository regularly needs volunteers to help with repacking donated food and other products. The repack session is a great introduction to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, the work we do here, and the need that we see in Cook County. A lot of the food received at the warehouse comes in bulk quantities and volunteers are scheduled to help break it down into more manageable sizes. 

In a repack session you might be sorting produce, looking over a shipment of bread, or repacking bulk dry goods (cereal, pasta, rice) into smaller quantities. Together, we can properly and efficiently distribute quality food to participating food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 years old and 14-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult chaperone (who must also register). Volunteers should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

In the Jesuit tradition, Loyola University New Orleans strives to develop individuals who dedicate their lives to service for others. Each year, hundreds of alumni around the country and students participate in Loyola's National Day of Community Service, Wolves on the Prowl.
