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.”

While we are finding ourselves in very difficult and trying times, there is always a need to feed those in need.

The time has now come to realize at what cost and what steps do we follow. Our world as we once knew it is being taken over with a virus that is running havoc on our nation and the world. There are too many unknowns in our future and the safety of our volunteers are a very big concern to all of us at Christmas Cheer.

So in order for the Christmas Cheer Foundation/Abundant Outreach to succeed, we are eliminating home deliveries of food this year.  We will be delivering large drops of food to other organizations and shelters that help those in need.

 You have been generous in past years and hope you will continue to do so in the hope that we can continue our home deliveries of meal distribution.

The Christmas Cheer Foundation also takes pleasure in announcing our new home at St. Giles Parish in Oak Park, IL.  The address and phone number are listed on top of this page.

You can also donate by going on to our website at www.christmascheer.org and pressing the “donate” button. We are grateful for all of you that have been most generous in giving of your time and contributions.  Any person wishing to be further involved in the growth of Christmas Cheer Foundation, should contact one of the individuals listed below by calling 708-383-0661.
