At COOL Ministries volunteers are always needed and always WELCOME!
There are many ways volunteers can support the mission of COOL and give much needed help at the food pantries and family housing units. Whether it is stocking shelves, picking up donations, helping with repairs or one of the many jobs in between, our staff is always happy to welcome you and get you started.
Volunteers are needed at both Pantry East in Waukegan and Pantry West in Ingleside. We have great opportunities for school, church and scout youth programs. Call Gayle Olson, Pantry Operations Manager at 847-662-1230 to ask how you can be a COOL volunteer!
