  • Back-to-School Drive

    Give a child the tools to start the school year off right. For every $25 in gifts made to Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois’ (LCFS) back-to-school drive, a child in our care is provided with a new book bag and school supplies kit. Many of our clients are struggling financially and have difficulty providing these crucial tools for their children’s education. Through a partnership with the “Kits for Kidz” program, LCFS is able to buy the materials at a discounted rate. Make a gift today, and you will ensure that a child’s return to school is a happy, prepared one.

    If you have questions about your back-to-school donation, contact Associate Director of Annual Giving Leslie Lopez at 708-488-5568 or leslie_lopez@lcfs.org. Thank you.
