New Year Decorations

As we enter another year faced with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of us at Families
Helping Families Chicagoland are grateful to continue providing the help and support that people
have come to rely on.


On behalf of our Board of Directors and the deserving individuals we serve, we thank you, our donors
and supporters, who have been right here with us. Everything we do is because of your compassion
and generosity. Because of you, we were able to navigate the impact of uncertainty and help
hundreds of children and families in need.


Now is the time when we once again ask for your end of year giving…

Thanks to your kindness and willingness to give, Families Helping Families Chicagoland has been
fortunate to serve our local communities in a variety of ways. In addition to filling many immediate
need requests for families in crisis and experiencing financial hardships, we’ve also provided children
in foster care with holiday presents, given warm coats to those who didn’t have them, planned
birthday celebrations for children in emergency domestic violence shelters, helped families whose
homes were destroyed by flood and fire, provided food to the hungry, and so much more.


Unfortunately, the new year is expected to bring even more challenges to our community, which is
why your support is so critical to our efforts.


Please consider a donation of any amount to help us continue helping those in need.

Our mission is simple. We are a grassroots organization mobilizing and linking our communities to
help families with children, and children in foster care, during times of crisis and hardship. Our goal is
to help as many people as we can. And, thanks to you, we’ve helped thousands since Families
Helping Families Chicagoland began 7 years ago.
As a completely volunteer-run 501(c)(3) organization, we simply cannot make an impact within our
local communities without generous and caring donors like you. 


With your help, we will continue to support hundreds of families and children through: 
● Fulfillment of immediate needs to meet urgent requests for families in crisis 
● Collection of new and used school supplies every summer for underfunded schools in the area
● Collection of birthday gifts every month and holiday gifts every year for children in foster care
● Sponsoring birthday celebrations for children in emergency domestic violence shelters
● Purchasing and distributing winter coats, gloves, hats, and scarves to children without


Your support is vital to helping us meet the growing needs of families and children in our community –
and sadly that need continues to grow.


You can make a difference. You’ve done so in the past. Can we count on you again?

Please consider making a donation to help us continue the important work that we do!

From the bottom of hearts, we thank you.

Wishing you and your families, a happy and healthy New Year!
