Although the need seems HUGE and the challenge daunting, we CAN help. Don’t be frightened by the huge numbers, we’re gonna take it slow and pay it forward.
Ready? This is gonna be:

This week the challenge is super simple: A bar of soap. Yes, that’s it! Got hotel bars? Donate them! Need to buy one? You can get a 2 pack from most drugstores for less than a buck.
We’re wanting to fill local food pantries with all kinds of goodies. It’s heart wrenching to think that people who 5 years ago would never have needed support find themselves in line for bread. If you’re in NWI or South Chicagoland, you can drop it off at one of these spots. I am looking for more IL businesses to be a drop off so contact me if you know of one. Also: Although this week is for Menards, feel free to drop off any couponed/great items you think we can donate!
Head on over to our Facebook event page and let us know how you did. We’d be really encouraged by stories or ideas.
