St. James has supported DuPage PADS for more than 20 years. According to the DuPage PADS volunteer coordinator, last year 7,000 volunteers donated 100,000 hours across DuPage County!

Although we had several new people sign on with us last year, we still need help in the following areas. It is only a once-a-month commitment for nine months out of the year—such a simple way to help so many! We have fun groups on all the shifts – it’s a great way to get to know each other!

We serve at First Presbyterian Church of Glen Ellyn on the 2nd Thursday evenings/Friday mornings from September through May. If you are willing and able to help in any area listed below, please contact us as soon as possible.

Thursday needs:

  • 10 pm – 2 am —one additional person to monitor this shift and help with making lunches
  • 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. shift— need two additional people to monitor this shift

Friday needs:

  • 6 a.m. to 7 a.m —We could use a couple more people to help with the clean up & tear-down. Some of this is heavy work. It’s a lot of work in a short period of time, so additional help would be greatly appreciated!


Provide monthly meals:

  • We are in need of additional individuals to provide monthly meals. If you are not able to make a monthly commitment but would like to be added to our list of subs, please send us your name, phone # and email address. Your help just a couple of months out of the year can make a huge difference!
