Drive for Independence
Food and Paper Drive
Drive for Independence: Food and Paper Drive. Rev up your engines to help! The Deacons' Community Ministry is sponsoring a Drive for Independence Food and Paper Goods Drive from June 24-July 8. This outreach helps replenish the depleted shelves of the Libertyville Township Food Pantry and St. Joseph's Food Pantry. Additionally, the drive provides supplies to FIT Teen Moms and the Lake County Haven. Teen Moms is a faith-based organization dedicated to the purpose of helping teen moms in Waukegan, Zion and North Chicago. The mission of The Haven is to empower homeless women and their children to achieve permanent, independent living.
A Drive for Independence display will be in our Sanctuary and Chapel narthexes beginning Sunday, June 24, decorated with tags requesting specific food and paper items for each group. Please take a tag and return your donation with the tag attached by noon, Sunday, July 8. Please do not wrap your donated item(s).
Thank you for helping our community neighbors as they work toward independence from need.
