Six members of North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS® (NSBAR) helped organize food donations and created holiday bags of food at the Cuba Township Food Pantry in Barrington, IL on Dec. 10.
The activities were part of NSBAR’s Volunteer Days. Each volunteer worked at the food pantry for two hour shifts, and together, about 100 bags of food were prepared and distributed to Cuba Township families in need.
The following offices donated a total of 60 pounds of food:
- 4 Sale Realty;
- RE/MAX Barrington;
- Unique Realty;
- Jameson Sotheby’s International;
- RE/MAX Advisors;
- Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Visions Realty;
- Baird & Warner Palatine; and
- Baird & Warner Barrington.
“This was a great way for Barrington NSBAR members to give back to their community,” said Tiff Krause-Lewandowski, Education department for NSBAR. “Special Thanks to Baird & Warner – Barrington, Baird & Warner – Palatine and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Visions Realty for their assistance in collecting donations for the food drive.”
