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.
To combat childhood hunger throughout Humboldt Park, The Salvation Army’s Freedom Center created an afternoon children’s meal program. Because of our Bed & Bread Club supporters, we can provide nutritious dinners and character-building programs for children in need, like siblings Donna and Jeremy, who take advantage of the Freedom Center when their mother works late.
“Mom works until after we get home,” Donna says. “Most days, we’ll go down the street and get some food, then hang out with the other kids.”
After dinner, the children can participate in classes and activities such as music lessons, arts and crafts, group chat and open gym. For children who are facing hardships in their communities and in their families, these programs provide an opportunity to be just a kid and to feel love. None of this would be possible without the caring support of Bed & Bread Club supporters!
Your gifts ensure The Salvation Army has the resources to provide shelter, food, clothing, counseling,
and medical care for anyone who walks through our doors.
As a Bed & Bread Club member, your support ensures The Salvation Army can provide safe shelter and nutritious meals to people all across Chicagoland, including families staying in our new Shield of Hope center.Donate Now
