Food & Supplies Drive | August 1–September 30
Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Christ Church Butterfield 2S361 Glen Park Rd., Lombard
In July, nearly 30 million Americans told the Census Bureau they didn't have enough to eat. COVID-19 continues to leave individuals and families without income, behind on rent and unable to purchase food and essential supplies. What’s more, the virus has impacted the ministries of our mission partners who care for those in need here in our neighborhood and nearby in Chicago.
You can make an impact by helping to provide much-needed essentials and wish list items to the people in our community. We encourage you to look beyond yourself by inviting those where you live, work and play to join you in caring for our neighbors and friends with donations and support.
This Food/Supplies Drive will serve those affected by COVID-19 through various channels:
- The Salvation Army/Christ Church Food Pantry — Serving families in need in our neighborhood
- Reclaim13 — Serving former victims of human trafficking as they recover
- Caring Network Chicago — Serving women in crisis dealing with unplanned pregnancy
See the detailed list of needed items below.
Drop-off dates and hours: August 1 through September 30, 2020
Mondays/Wednesdays/Thursdays/Sundays | 9:00 a.m. — 12:00 p.m.
Donation Drop-off Location:
Christ Church Butterfield | 2S361 Glen Park Rd, Lombard, IL 60148
Note: There is NO DROP-OFF or collection of food at the Oak Brook campus at this time.
Curbside Drop-off: As you enter our parking lot, you will see a cart near the entrance to the building that is clearly marked “Thank you for your donations.” Please leave all items on the cart or in a box beside the cart so volunteers can pick them up and sort them at regular intervals throughout the day.
