More than 1 million households in Illinois struggle to afford the basic necessities of housing, childcare, food, transportation, health care and technology.
Now their struggle is even more difficult. Many people have lost their jobs. Schools are closed, affecting children who rely on free meal programs. Social service agencies that serve people in need have a shortage of food and supplies. The demand for assistance is significantly greater today than it was a month ago.
You can help.
You can donate to support social service agencies in Kane and Kendall counties striving to serve children and families at this critical time. Our Fox Valley Coronavirus Relief Fund is gathering personal and corporate donations and will distribute them locally to these agencies. Together, we can help stop the increasing economic ripple effect of this pandemic!
We are committed to doing our part to ensure that all children and families at risk have the resources they need, now and in the near future. Thank you for your help!
