Packs of Plenty (P.O.P.) Volunteers Needed

Barrington Children’s Charities P.O.P. program (formerly Blessings in a Backpack) is a non-profit organization that provides weekend food packs to food-insecure students in Barrington 220. Sign up via the link below to help pack food bags on Tuesday, March 2 at Moretti’s Unique Events (2525 W Higgins Rd).

Once a month we pack over 2,800 bags and the district distributes them weekly to each school. Packing is indoors, but all sliding doors on both sides of building are open to encourage air flow and circulation. The volunteer list is limited to ensure we can provide a safe environment and can count on our volunteers to be there. No children allowed and we cannot accept walk up volunteers at this time. Please direct any questions to Anna Ouellette,
