What makes Chicago great?
It’s gotta be our sports teams – the 2016 World Series Champion Cubs or the legendary, 6-time World Champion Bulls. Or maybe it’s our pizza – deep dish, golden crust, filled with sauce, cheese and other drool-inducing toppings. But, then again, our culture is great too – numerous art galleries, historical museums and, of course, The Second City! Sure, all of these are a part of who we are. But, the thing that makes this city truly great is our heart.
You see, at The Salvation Army we have witnessed the desire Chicagoans have to help their neighbors; to put the needs of others above their own. That’s why we created the Bed & Bread Club® Chicago, a comprehensive program focused on providing food and shelter to those most in need in our great city.
The premise behind the Bed & Bread Club is simple:
You pledge to give whatever amount you choose each month.
Your donation then helps provide food, shelter and other necessities so struggling people can get back on their feet.
Simply put, you’re joining forces with The Salvation Army as we fight for the hungry and homeless in a way that makes a real difference . . . in their lives, and the well-being of our great city.
It’s hard to believe that it is 2017 (almost 2018!) and there are still people who don’t know when or where their next meal will come from; that families huddle together under bridges, trying to escape the cold. When they turn to us, it’s comforting to know that we can turn to kindhearted people like you to support us as we provide hope to those who have lost sight of it.
This holiday season, if you are not already a member, be a gift to our community by joining the Bed & Bread Club. Or dedicate your membership on behalf of a friend or loved one. There’s no better way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas than to open your heart and help our neighbors in need.
