How you can help


In our first year, we delivered complete Thanksgiving Dinners to 195 families in the Chicago Suburbs around the Streamwood, Bartlett, and Hanover Park areas. Each basket feeds a family of five, so we were able to bring Thanksgiving to 975 people who may not otherwise have been able to afford to celebrate due to difficult circumstances. Over 120 volunteers helped create the baskets and hand delivered them to these wonderful families.
