Volunteers & Gifts In-Kind
Back to School Backpack Drive
This year Lutheran Social Services of Illinois will be collecting new backpacks and school supplies for the families we serve in the Chicagoland area. We are asking individuals, congregations, and organizations to purchase a new backpack and fill it with age appropriate school supplies from the supply list. Backpacks need to be ready for distribution by August 8, 2016. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Joy Medrano at Joy.Medrano@LSSI.org or 847.635.4653.
If you or a group of people from your congregation are interested in volunteering your time in support of LSSI, please contact Joy Medrano at 847.635.4653 or Joy.Medrano@LSSI.org.
Many of the children, families and individuals we serve are in need of life's basic necessities. Throughout the year, LSSI receives assistance from generous friends to provide both everyday items and special gifts for the people served by our programs. We are in need of gift cards from Target, Walmart, Jewel Osco and Mariano's in $5, $10 and $20 denominations for emergency funds distributed by our programs. For more information, contact Joy Medrano at 847.635.4653 or Joy.Medrano@LSSI.org.
