Exelon Generation Volunteers for Health

 

Packaging single-serve cereal bowls and sorting jelly packets into weekly allotments means several mornings without hunger for those who need it, our Exelon nuclear volunteers recently learned.

Eighteen NAYGN and WIN members recently volunteered at Green Harvest Food Pantry in Plainfield. Volunteers came from Dresden, Braidwood, and Cantera. Their work included preparing packages of food for distribution for those in need.

Green Harvest Food Pantry assists low-income working people, recently displaced workers, and senior citizens on a low fixed income residing in Plainfield, Aurora, Oswego, Plano, Naperville, Montgomery, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, and Yorkville. The organization commits to providing about a week's worth of food once a month for six months as a means to allow people to "move toward a solution, restore their health, and most importantly, to provide hope."

Dresden's NAYGN and WIN groups organize a volunteer collaboration every two months, typically on the last or second to last Thursday of the month. Volunteer nights last about an hour.
