Union Church Food & Paper Products Drive for HCS Family Services
HCS Family Services is a non-profit organization serving the residents of Southeast DuPage and Western Cook Counties. Their goal is to help alleviate some of the worries of low income families by providing them with food and assistance. The main food pantry is located in the Hinsdale Memorial Building. There is a second food pantry at Anne M. Jeans School in Willowbrook. Union Church is proud to have had a long partnership with HCS Family Services.
Did you know that families needing assistance through food stamps are unable to use food stamps to purchase items that are not in the food category? This means no toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, diapers, pull-ups, wipes and feminine hygiene products. We all know how expensive these items can be.
Beginning October 6th, 2019, and for the duration the month, the Mission Ministry will be sponsoring a Food and Paper Products drive for HCS Family Services. The members of the congregation are encouraged to bring in non-perishable canned and or boxed food items as well as paper products, diapers, wipes and feminine hygiene products. Even the smallest donation can make a difference in a family’s life.
Let’s make this a great Food & Paper Products drive for HCS Family Services and do our best to fill the shelves. You may bring in your items and drop them off on the designated shelves in the Gathering place during this time. Please note – when donating diapers, please donate sizes 3 and up.
In addition to Donations of Food & Paper Products: Because HCS Family Services are part of the Food Bank Network they are able to leverage monetary donations. For every $1 dollar donated, they are able to purchase the equivalent of
$8 in a grocery store, so monetary donations are encouraged & greatly appreciated as well.
In order to make a monetary donation, please make out checks directly to HCS Family Services. You may either place the donation in the Sunday offering plate, bring it to the offices of the church during normal business hours, or mail it to 137 S. Garfield St. Hinsdale, IL, 60521.
The Mission Ministry and HCS Family Services thank you!
