Save the date! On July 22, 2014 restaurants throughout Chicago will be donating a percentage of their sales to CCO. Here is how it works. Simple choose from the growing list of restaurants (below), enjoy a meal with friends or family on July 22, and a percentage of your meal tab goes to CCO. The donation from your tab will help alleviate homelessness in Chicago. This donation will not be an added cost to you!
Neighbor Carts are coming back! The map above will help you find out where you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables this summer. Neighbor Carts are part of StreetWise, an organization that works to stabilize homeless individuals through employment and social services.
If you’re out and about in the city be sure to stop by a Neighbor Cart and get some delicious produce!
Do you love garage sales? If bargain hunting is your thing, come to 935 W. Wilson Avenue in Chicago between 7am and 3pm this Saturday! Books, electronics, child and baby items and much more will be up for sale. Hope we see you there!
The big orange Love Kitchen visited CCO last week. Little Caesars employees volunteered their time to make delicious pizza’s for CCO shelter guests. Preparations were made from the Little Caesars food truck parked on Clifton Avenue. What a great way to volunteer and help alleviate hunger! Thanks Little Caesars!
Got Milk? The CCO dining room serves over 500 nutritious plates of food each day and milk is an important part of the meal. Milk is packed nutrients that help kids grow and keep adults healthy.
However, iit is a costly essential. Would your church or civic group be willing to purchase milk on a monthly basis? Your gift would provide a protein-packed drink for the children, women and men sheltered at CCO.
