This month, we did the 30 hour Famine and the Superbowl of Caring. Both projects this month help contribute to overcoming World Hunger.
In February 2022, we raised $265 for the Superbowl of Caring! In March 2022 we raised $692 for the Ukraine.
Social Ministry Committee
Calvary Lutheran Church’s Winter Diaper Drive supporting LSSI was a huge success! Much thanks to all who donated. LSSI is the largest provider of foster care in IL, handling about 10% of the cases referred to the Department of Child and Family Services. That means that at any one time LSSI has about 2,000 in foster care. The items collected, diapers/wipes, and ointments, are vital for families with young children but are also expensive for people who have limited incomes. In addition to our children’s services, LSSI offers substance use treatment (detox, inpatient, outpatient, and sober living homes), mental health counseling, residential facilities for people with disabilities, low income senior housing, and reintegration services for inmates coming out of incarceration. The central services office is located in Des Plaines but have over 50 service sites/offices across the state.
