Here are some upcoming mission project you can help with:
Greater Chicago Food Depository: Join us to help volunteer at the Greater Chicago Food Depository on Saturday, February 16, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon. We will meet at Lyonsville Church to carpool between 8:15 and 8:30 that morning. The GCFD, Chicago's largest food bank, is a non-profit food distribution and training center providing food for hungry people. They rely heavily on their volunteers to help repack bulk products, assemble boxes with food, check expiration dates, glean produce, etc. Participants must be at least 13 years old. Contact the church office if you would like to help.
Lyonsville Church Food Pantry: Come and help out at our own food pantry for just one hour. The pantry is open on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. We would like to have 2 people there to help our guests/visitors during this time. Volunteers help restock any donated food, and bag up food for guests. If you would like to donate food, we have a current need for canned meat products (tuna and chicken), and paper products. Contact the church office if you would like to help. Donated food can be dropped off while the pantry is open, or contact the church office.
Thanksgiving Food Baskets: The Mission Ministry gave away 12 Thanksgiving baskets for our food pantry guests. Thank you for your generosity!
CROP Walk: We had a team of nine people walk in the LaGrange/Western Springs area CROP Walk on Sunday afternoon, October 21. The team raised over $1100 in donations. CROP Walk is a program organized by Church World Service. Walkers get sponsors to help raise money for hunger-relief programs locally and around the world. A portion of the funds raised go to support our own Lyonsville Food Pantry.
