Yearlong Service Opportunities
>HandsOn Suburban Chicago- CLICK HERE for a full list of volunteer opportunities within the Chicagoland area
> Maine West Library- Librarians are always in need of assistance restocking shelves, decorating, and completing random odds and ends through out the year. Talk to one of the librarians at the front desk to learn how you can help.
> Counselor's Office and Front Office- From filing to running errands, school administrators could always use an extra hand in completing daily tasks that help to maintain an efficient school. Speak to someone at the front desk in either office to find out how you may be of service.
> Bessie's Table- Bessie’s Table began in October 2003, with a simple mission in mind; “Providing a hot home cooked meal, in a welcoming environment to individuals and families in need at no cost.” Operating on the “Stone Soup Principle”, we gather donated food items from various sources and create a complete meal. It is through these donations of goods that Bessie’s Table can prepare and serve each meal needed every Monday evening. CLICK HERE to find out more about volunteering.

If you are a part of another club/organization in or out of school that needs extra help with an event, let Ms. Wisdom or any of the officers know so that e-mails and text messages can be sent out encouraging other members of National Honor Society to get some service hours in by helping out in whatever way they can.
