Delivering Thanksgiving to Kids and Families-in-need

Our mission begins by providing complete Thanksgiving dinners to local area families-in-need, while, at the same time, delivering a message of hope, knowing that their community cares about them. Since we believe that the secret to LIVING is GIVING, we also focus on the growth-of-the-giver, both young and old, hosting an annual assembly and delivery day which is often as impactful to our volunteers as it is to our recipients.

We’ve found that by partnering with local school districts we are able to provide the greatest impact, by dealing directly with school social workers, we are able to uniquely identify families with children, who are food-insecure, and in need of the love and support at Thanksgiving time.

Thanksgiving dinners are delivered to families residing in Streamwood, Hanover Park, Bartlett, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Carpentersville, Elgin and South Elgin.
