EGBC members and friends donate time to serve as volunteers for or at local agencies for special projects or at special times of the year.
ELK GROVE VILLAGE FOOD PANTRY — Three times a year, we conduct food drives to help stock the Elk Grove Village Food Pantry. These food drives occur over two successive Saturdays: One Saturday we deliver empty grocery bags to area residences; the next Saturday, we pick up the filled bags and deliver them to the Food Pantry. EGBC also has an on-going Food Pantry donation box in our administration wing lobby. Non-perishable items may be delivered at any time.
SERVING THE VILLAGE DAYS — Three times a year, often affiliated with EGV Food Pantry collections, teams of volunteers visit Elk Grove residents, businesses, or civil servants to help with maintenance matters. Much-needed yard work, window washing, fence painting, trash hauling are some of the activities we’ve done for neighbors in years past. We also visit our local police and fire stations, the Alexian Brothers ER to uplift the crews on call, or local schools.
Request assistance or inquire how our Helping Hands Team can help you.
FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN — An ongoing Community Group serving project is an evening a Feed My Starving Children, a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. Volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, that are sent to orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty across the globe. This is an intergeneration outreach.
