Bed & Bread Club: Restoring Hope in Our Community.

A monthly membership in the Bed & Bread Club helps bring hope to the hopeless, and change for those who once thought it impossible.

Join Today

The Bed & Bread Club is a monthly giving program dedicated to fighting hunger and homelessness throughout our community.

When you pledge to give, you’re not just providing food and shelter, you’re offering second chances.

No parent should have to choose
between school supplies and food.

When Jessica told us she couldn’t afford food, much less school supplies, we knew we needed to help. We connected her to our caseworker, who assisted her with groceries and clothing for the children. This support helped ease the financial burden so that Jessica could send her kids back to school with the proper supplies. Now her kids are prepared and can focus on what’s most important: learning! 

It’s not uncommon for hard-working families in our area to have trouble affording necessities with the added cost of back-to-school supplies. For that reason, Salvation Army corps community centers throughout Chicago, northern Illinois and western Indiana offer events to help financially strapped parents. 

Your support of the Bed & Bread Club helps us provide food and shelter to struggling families so they can ensure their children can thrive both at school and home.
