The Precision Shopping Cart Brigade once again performs during the 4th of July Parade in Glen Ellyn. The marchers are collecting food donations for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. The Brigade performs coordinated maneuvers to entertain the parade audience, accept donations, and raise awareness about hunger in our community. OneChurch is coordinating the marchers this year. OneChurch is a partnership of several Glen Ellyn churches joined together in mission, service, and ministry.
The Brigade needs volunteers to make their Glen Ellyn Food Pantry Marching project successful. Examples of volunteer positions are: Coordinator for each church involved, distributing papers bags to homes along the parade route with a friendly request for donations, Adopt-a-Lawn sign to be placed along the parade route, help decorate shopping carts prior to the parade at Grace Lutheran Church, be a marcher in the Brigade, shuttle donations from the Brigade carts to the support truck during the parade, drive a support truck, unload donations into the Food Pantry after the parade, bring non-perishable food items to the parade, and ask your friends and neighbors to bring a donation.
