How else can I help?

This year we are celebrating 25 years of helping Chicago’s most vulnerable children. We are so proud that with your help we have been able to expand our reach to more children and families over the years.

Our families are so grateful for the abundance of support they received this holiday season. However, we are finding that some of them still need key day to day items. Currently, our families’ biggest need is diapers.

Are you willing to host a diaper drive at your school or office? Are you willing to drop off a personal donation of a box of diapers? If so please contact us.
