COOL Happenings   |   June 2017

Hi <<First Name>>,
           Happy Father's Day!   Author Harlan Coben once wrote, "This is the price you pay for having a great father.   You get the wonder, the joy, the tender moments -- and you get the tears at the end, too."   We hope you are thoroughly enjoying this special weekend.  Here is what is happening at COOL Ministries this month:

Pantry Helpers Needed!
Thank you volunteers who took time to help at the COOL Food Pantry East recently.   Your time and hard work is appreciated!   But the Food Pantry still is in great need of volunteers.   There are lots of jobs to do including stocking shelves, unloading trucks, packing boxes, and working at the pantry counter, greeting clients, and distributing pre-packed boxes of food and other goodies.   Pantry Counter Volunteers should be able to lift 20 pounds.   Warehouse workers who can lift and operate a pallet jack and drive trucks are always in demand.   Shifts available are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.   You may volunteer to work one shift per week, or two or three, or just now and then.   All are welcome!   Contact Gayle at 847-662-1230 if interested.   Thank you in advance for helping COOL to feed our hungry neighbors.
