This holiday season shop our online retail store for that special gift through our partnership with Swedemom Center of Giving.
With Swedemom’s help, we are able to turn high-end donations, vintage goods, and items that aren’t immediately useful for shelter guests into useable income for Cornerstone.
This process allows us to be better stewards of peoples’ good intentions and make the best use of ALL donations while helping to ensure we can continue to provide necessary services for Chicago’s most marginalized.
So if you’re looking for antique doorknobs from the 1800s, designer cashmere sweaters, the missing piece in Grandma’s tchotchke collection or just specialty cookware, we might have exactly what you need at a great price!
Today Kicks 4 The City fit everyone at the Cornerstone cafeteria personally, with a new pair of shoes. The smiles were contagious, and gratitude so high. We are so grateful to Justin, Paige and all the amazing people who came today to make so many happy and provide such an essential item as shoes.
Join Team CCO for the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon
Over 330 people stay at Cornerstone Community Outreach who are experiencing homelessness. What’s one way you can help them on their path to being housed?
Run a marathon!
Yes, that is a daunting task, but for those who decide to put one foot in front of the other, the path is there!
With Team CCO, our charity fitness crew, you can use your love of running to bring support to Cornerstone. Through fundraising, connecting with others to build awareness, and on course visibility, you can help a family get housed!
The 2019 Team CCO runners raised enough money combined to provide 4,195 nights of shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Our goal for 2020 is to raise enough for over 6,000 nights. Help us meet that goal, and meet your own too!
Today, Cornerstone became able to accept donations via Apple Pay. Using Messages on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, start a new conversation with firstname.lastname@example.org, then chose how much you want to donate. And you can also add a personal message when donating!
Like all your donations, they are tax deductible and go directly to Cornerstone.
“Every Wednesday over 150 people gather in the CCO dining room to “shop” for nutritious food. Canned vegetables, meat, pasta, grains, nuts, boxed food, and more, a wide variety of groceries are offered each week and over 25% consist of nutritious, fresh fruits and vegetables. The majority of CCO food pantry patrons are senior citizens. The bags of groceries they take home provides the financial relief needed to pay rent, obtain important prescription medications, or other necessities, on a fixed income.”
