September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide campaign mobilizing each of us to take action against hunger in our communities. Feeding those in need is a cause that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and its volunteer members take to heart! During this time of economic uncertainty, global pandemic, and high unemployment, raising awareness and funds to help solve hunger in our communities is urgent. Food insecurity increases sharply for our many as the weather cools and we enter into fall and winter here in Chicagoland. Many of our local food pantries missed out on springtime food drives that usually take place in coordination with the Easter season, due to COVID-19 Stat-at-Home orders, and are now looking to replenish shelves in order to prepare for the anticipated higher demand.
You can directly help make a difference in your community by making a donation to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago.
