Members of three ASSE Chicago-area chapters packed 8,815 lb of food while volunteering at a local food bank.

ASSE members from the Greater Chicago, Three Rivers and Northeastern Illinois (NEIL) chapters came together for the sixth consecutive year to volunteer their time at the Northern Illinois Food Bank on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016. They spent the day packing apples and carrots.

“It’s always a good time and very rewarding to give back to the community,” says Amy Timmerman, NEIL Chapter President.

Overall the volunteers packed 8,815 lb of food, which provides 7,345 meals for hungry neighbors in Northern Illinois.
