  • Food Drive

    LCFS responds to basic needs in communities by distributing nutritional food to low-income individuals and families in the Little Village and Uptown neighborhoods of Chicago and in downstate Hardin. LCFS’ food and clothing distribution services can mean the difference between meeting the day’s nutritional needs and going to bed hungry. You can help by holding a food drive at your congregation, business or school and delivering the non-perishable items to one of our pantry sites.

  • 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.
