The Hope Food Pantry is now operating with a Drive-Thru format on Church Street for the foreseeable future. Since we are pre-packing bags with specific items, donations of money are the best way to help the food pantry effort. Go to www.thehopefoodpantry.org to volunteer or donate online. Several employers in the area are matching or even doubling donations made to help the Covid-19 pandemic. Please check with your employers to see if this is available! Copies of the IRS 501(3)C Determination Letter are available for "Hope Food Distribution Services, NFP" if needed.
Additionally, volunteers are needed every Thursday at the Drive-Thru pantry of Emmanuel Faith in North Chicago. This is an easy way to really help our community. Hours are 2:30-4:30 Thursdays. Masks and gloves provided, social distancing strictly enforced. It is not uncommon to give out 175 pre-packed boxes which are received with much gratitude. Families are welcome to volunteer together, just no children under 12 please. Contact email@example.com to volunteer or donate. Thank you!
