A message to our volunteers:

The best thing we can do right now is to keep doing what we have always done – “serve those in need.”

Due to the pandemic and all the protocols, we are forced to discontinue delivering meals to the homes of thousands of people in need in the Chicago land area. However, for the time being, we have contacted major charities, shelters and food pantries to help in the distribution of meals, hats, scarves and gloves.
Obviously, the need for volunteers has lessened yet there is always a need for donations.
