Delivery Day

    Sign Up to Volunteer

    Give us your name & email address and we'll notify you of future volunteer opportunities.

    Maot Chitim is concerned for the ongoing welfare, safety and health of our Community. We have been carefully monitoring the developments surrounding the global spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

    Based on the current situation and the State of Illinois restrictions, we are going to be purchasing and delivering Jewel gift cards to our recipients. This will enable them to purchase food for Rosh Hashanah. The change for this holiday will allow us to serve our recipients safely, with less exposure for our volunteers and recipients.

    As committed donors and volunteers, we understand you look forward to the packing and delivering food for others. We are sorry we are unable to provide that opportunity. Some of our recipients may require assistance shopping for their food. If you wish to volunteer to to do the grocery shopping, please contact us at [email protected]

    We thank you for your dedication and ongoing support. It is greatly appreciated, and we could not do what we do without your generosity.

    Packaging Food

    Beginning approximately three weeks before the holiday we need volunteers to assemble boxes and to put non-perishable food items in the packages.

    The week before Delivery, we need volunteers to help pack the Non-perishable food items. Shifts start at 9:15, 10:30, & 11:45.

    All warehouse volunteers must:

    • 1. Meet the minimum age requirement of 12 years old.
    • 2. For safety reasons everyone must wear closed toe shoes.

    Anyone and everyone, including singles and families with small children (no age restrictions), are invited to help out with the delivery of the packages.
