MAKE MIRACLES HAPPEN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITH NORTHWESTERN SETTLEMENT

The holiday season is fast approaching, and while for many it is a time of celebration and spending, for those Northwestern Settlement serves each day, it is often a time of difficulty. Help the Settlement make the holidays bright for our neighbors in need!

Adopt a Family

While our arts, education, and social services change 40,000 lives annually and reach residents in 85% of Chicago’s zip codes year-round, the holidays are a special time at the Settlement. Each winter we make the miracle of Christmas happen for Chicago children. Through our Adopt -A-Family program and our Holiday Toy Room, we make Christmas special for nearly 800 neighbors in need.

VOLUNTEER EVENTS

Basket Packing

HOLIDAY DRIVES help stock our toy room and feed families. Each year, our food pantry and AmeriCorps Project YES! hands out baskets of food and warm clothing to seniors and neighbors who frequent our food pantry. In our Holiday Toy Room, hundreds of children choose a gift they wouldn’t otherwise receive, thanks to the generosity of those who donate items.

Basket Packing

ADOPT A FAMILY to give children and their parents the holiday they deserve but cannot always provide themselves. You’ll choose a family (or families) from among our neighbors who are most in need. For as little as $50 for each family member, you’ll give the gift of a family holiday celebration: from necessities like food, clothes, and bedsheets, to wish list items like a new toy.

A GIFT OF $35 FEEDS A FAMILY.

Please consider making a contribution to bring a family together over the dinner table this holiday season.

You can create miracles this holiday season! Contact Adel Johnson at ajohnson@nush.org for information on any of these events, how to adopt a family or hold a drive.
