Last time we made our donations of school supplies through our Mayor’s office. Recently I learned from our Northern Illinois Refugee Coordinator that World Relief needs donations specially of hygiene kits, gift cards and Ventra cards, among other things.
They are also looking for volunteers to help with transportation for these families to their appointments (medical, legal, etc.). if you can give some of your time for this work, please sign up here.
Friends, our God calls us to care for one another and support those less privileged than us. Remember, none of us can do everything, but every one of us can do something to make this world a better place, to help the needy, and keep our communities safer and welcoming spaces for all people, and let us not forget that whatever we do for anyone in need- we are doing it to a child of God, to the image of God, to God!
