Over 120 children and youth are sheltered with their parents at CCO, during the holidays and all throughout the year. You, as a donor, volunteer, and supporter have always been a valuable part of making the season bright for each and every child.
The giving doesn’t stop with the families. The residents of our single women and single men’s shelters are no less important. Each program celebrates with a festive party that includes decorations, a delicious holiday meal and gifts. Everyone is valued and no one is left out.
Help us make the Holiday Season shine at CCO! Consider donating new toys, teen presents, or items for our single adults. Don’t like shopping? You can help by making a financial gift that will allow our Christmas volunteers to provide presents for families who arrive at CCO a day or two before Christmas.
Contact Eve at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help us this Holiday Season.
Today is #GivingTuesday. It is a global event that was created as “an opportunity to give generously following a weekend of shopping and consumerism.”
It is a great day to give, though any day is a great day to give! Consider a donation today.
The Holiday Season is here! When you reflect on what you are thankful for, whom you want to surprise with a gift, and what causes to support, consider helping a homeless family in Chicago. Every day more families experience homelessness for the first time.
Right now, over 40 families and 125 children are sheltered at Cornerstone. Every families path to housing is different, including the length of time it may take to get housed.
For $22.00 per night, CCO can provide three meals per day, case management, personal hygiene and clothing, and the safe place to sleep. As the average length of time it takes for a family to get housed is around one-hundred and eight days, that estimated cost per family is $4000.00. Half of that cost is paid for in part by the City of Chicago, however Cornerstone needs your help to pay for the other half!
You can provide this opportunity for success for a homeless family. Your support is what makes it possible. Every person and family who moves from homelessness to housing is a cause for celebration!
Today, and throughout this holiday season, please consider making a one-time or on-going donation as your Holiday Gift to help a homeless family get housed. Whether you can provide one night of shelter for $22, or a hundred nights, your donation will make a difference in the life of families experiencing homelessness. Make Your Donation Today!
