Giving Back: Volunteering at St. Pius Church in Pilsen

At Barker/Nestor, we believe in the power of giving back to our community and making a positive impact in the lives of those around us. Recently, members of our team had the privilege of volunteering at the local St. Pius Church in Pilsen, an experience that left a lasting impression on all of us.

On a sunny Friday morning, we gathered at the church to lend a helping hand in compiling bags of groceries for the community to pick up later in the day. It was heartwarming to see how local businesses came together to donate various food items and household essentials, providing much-needed support to families in need in the Pilsen neighborhood.

As we sorted through cans of food and other essentials, we were struck by the sense of unity and generosity that permeated the space. Every item we packed represented a donation from a local business or individual who cared deeply about their community, and it was a humbling reminder of the power of collective action in creating positive change.

Just a few hours of our time made a tangible difference in the lives of those who rely on the support of organizations like St. Pius Church. The smiles of the staff who work hard to support those less fortunate were a testament to the impact of our collective efforts.

As we reflect on our experience volunteering at St. Pius Church, we are filled with a sense of gratitude and fulfillment. It was a reminder that even small acts of kindness and compassion can have a ripple effect, touching the lives of those in need and strengthening the bonds of community.

Looking ahead, we at Barker/Nestor are eager to continue our commitment to giving back and serving our local Chicago community. We look forward to more volunteer opportunities, more moments of connection and solidarity, and more chances to make a meaningful difference in the world around us.

Together, let us continue to support one another, uplift those in need, and build a brighter, more compassionate future for all. Thank you to St. Pius Church, the local businesses, and everyone who contributes to making our community a better place. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside you.
