Long Term Commitments
In addition to fundraisers that we have done for individuals and their families, we also raise money to support several Chicago area organizations.
We have done other donations to other organizations on a one time basis. The above commitments are ongoing.
Pacific Garden MissionThis is a homeless shelter in Chicago, over 100 years old. They receive no government funds, they house people short term and long term. This includes mothers with their children. They serve thousands of meals a day. We donate their annual budget for milk, formula, diapers, crib material (sheets, etc) for all the children that eat there and are housed there. We have also had a Christmas party, with Santa, for the kids that live there - we have done that for the last two years.
