December 15th-31st: Their Mission is to deliver meals to those in need with the support of community volunteers. For many Americans, Meals on Wheels is the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing facility. The nutritious meal, friendly visit and wellness check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: nutrition needs, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when older adults have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer.


December 1st-14th: All God’s People is an organization that ministers to the needs of homeless people in the Chicago Loop area. The second Saturday of the month they set up a distribution center at 2431 South State Street where we hand out clothing, blankets, toiletries, and food. The need is great. They serve 500 or more people who wait patiently in line to receive items that meet their basic needs.
