While we sit comfortably in our homes this winter season, we must remember that the cold weather can be especially harsh for too many of our neighbors. These vulnerable neighbors— already suffering from the pandemic, loss of jobs, displacement, and now, no warm jackets in these freezing Chicago temperatures, need our collective help.
ICNA Relief is stepping in to help alleviate this suffering. Thanks to benevolent partners such as Zakat Chicago, the College of DuPage, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Sana Mohsin, Muslim Association of Bolingbrook, and YOU
ICNA Relief’s Commitment to Providing Relief
The cold winter season is temporary, but the needs in our community continue year-round. ICNA Relief team members are on the ground all year long, even with the global epidemic raging across our neighborhoods. Our services are catered to the newborn, the elderly, and everyone in between. Our programs include hunger prevention, women’s transitional housing, back to school giveaways, healthcare services, winter drives, family services, disaster relief, and much more.
It’s important to mention that without community support through volunteerism, donations, and raising awareness, none of these projects would come to fruition. With supporters like you, our neighbors in need don’t have to choose between preventing hunger, keeping a roof over their heads, or providing warm clothing.
So far this year, we’ve reached over 50,000 individuals!
- Here’s a quick look at our efforts in the Chicagoland area from January to November 2020:
- Over 475,000 pounds of food distributed
- 21 homeless women rescued and rehabilitated
- 1,600 backpacks and school supplies to low-income students
- 12 cars donated
- 531 hygiene kits
On behalf of the families we serve, thank you for your generous support today and every day. Your contributions matter.
