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.
After completing her Certified Nursing Assistant courses, Alana was ready to start supporting her two children – Vince and Amber. Unfortunately, she was having difficulty finding employment. With Christmas quickly approaching, Alana worried she would not be able to provide her children with a traditional holiday meal or toys. That’s when she turned to The Salvation Army.
Because of our Bed & Bread Club supporters, we were able to register Alana for our Christmas Assistance program, which helps more than 23,000 Chicagoland families each year. We provided Alana a full Christmas dinner box with a turkey, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, cranberry sauce, dessert and more. In addition, we ensured Vince and Amber would have toys and gifts to open on Christmas morning.
“It is so special that people who don’t even know us go out of their way to make sure we have presents on Christmas,” Alana says. “They don’t have to, but they make sure we’re happy. And I appreciate it!”
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
