Volunteers & Gifts In-Kind

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.

Gift Cards

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. Storage space and resources are limited, making it difficult to handle unsolicited donated items. However, gift cards take up little space and allow us the most flexibility when fulfilling the needs of our clients and the staff that support them.

Gift cards can be used for:

  • Helping a foster family prepare to receive a child into their home
  • Birthday, Christmas and other gifts to children throughout the year
  • A meal for an individual getting back on their feet
  • Staff efforts to support families, individuals, and seniors when needed

We are in need of gift cards from stores such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Subway, McDonalds, Dunkin' Donuts, as well as local chain grocery stores and area gas stations in $5, $10, and $20 denominations. For more information, contact Joy.Medrano@LSSI.org at 847.635.4653.

At this time we can not accept unsolicited items.
