WHAT IS A RELIEF BOX?
Jesus wants us to love our friends. Jesus wants us to serve others. Jesus wants us to work together.
This is a partnership to support the amazing and beautiful work that has been happening on Chicago’s Westside through our friend Stephanie Marquardt and City of Refuge Chicago. You can read all about this amazing organization through this link. City of Refuge Chicago
We will be serving our friends who call the Westside home through the help and partnership of Sgt. Jermaine Harris and Chicago Westside Police and Youth Sports. Instead of us telling you about this positive impact, please watch it for yourself right here. Watch video
This community, that is less than an hour from most of our homes, has been through a lot. And now, their community has been looted from people outside of their neighborhoods. They need relief and they need it now.
We have the opportunity to serve 500 families. Each Relief Box serves a mother and three children for nearly a week.
We are asking each of our families to help bring relief quickly. Through a massive collaborative effort of listening, learning and now doing, we have designed Friends Together Relief Boxes. These boxes will provide fresh groceries, dry goods and household items. More on that below.
