HCS Family Services Junior Board Mission Statement
We are youth dedicated to strengthening the community through awareness, volunteerism, and fundraising in support of HCS Family Services’ mission.
About the HCS Family Services Junior Board
The HCS Family Services Junior Board is an Auxiliary Board of HCS Family Services consisting of 30-50 high school students from the Western Suburbs of Chicago who work together to promote awareness for HCS Family Services, to volunteer at the pantries located in Hinsdale and Willowbrook, and to plan and create fundraisers to benefit HCS Family Services. Through Board service, members develop valuable leadership and communication skills, and those who meet the membership requirements may proudly list membership on college applications.
- Attend 7 out of 9 meetings (either virtual or in-person)
- Volunteer at one of the pantries 4 times per year
- Volunteer at 4 different HCS Family Services events throughout the year (events include grocery store food collection events, restaurant night-out events, and more!)
- Pay a $15 membership fee (includes a new Junior Board shirt)
Changes Resulting from COVID-19
Due to Covid-19, Board members are asked to register before every meeting, and face coverings and social distancing are required. Every effort will be made to keep everyone safe and to ensure all meetings and events comply with the State of Illinois IDPH guidelines.
If you are unable to volunteer at the pantry or different events due to COVID-19, we will work to offer alternative volunteer activities. Members are not penalized due to COVID-19-related absences.
