Give Help

First, Pray.

There are deep-seated reasons why poverty exists in a wealthy country like ours. Pray for those in need, pray for those seeking to help others and to change policies that reinforce hunger and homelessness.

Second, Volunteer!

We are always in need of a few extra hands. Please check our homepage for upcoming events where we need help! You may also contact us for volunteer opportunities.

Third, Give.

Our partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank helps us provide more to our clients. Monetary and supply donations are gladly welcomed.

Money Donations — Money goes toward buying food at a greatly reduced rate through our partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank. This allows us to participate in the Emergency Food Program (offering free commodities of fresh and frozen foods) in addition to also purchasing food at a price of $0.14/lb. A dollar goes further with us purchasing food through the Northern Illinois Food Bank rather than the traditional grocery stores. Please consider donating monetarily to us.

Supply Donations —We are always in need of the following supplies: Boxed Dinners and Boxed Potatoes, Canned Soups, Toothpaste & Toothbrushes, Deodorants & Soaps, Canned Fruits & Vegetables, Pasta & Pasta Sauces, and Healthy Cereals. Refrigeration and freezers are available for perishable item donations.

Donations can be brought to Nativity Lutheran Church anytime during normal church office hours Monday-Friday 9:30 AM-1PM. Perishable items should be brought during pantry normal hours (on Wednesdays and Thursdays). Contact us if you have any questions.
