Spread the Warmth 2020

It is estimated that over 80,000 Chicagoans are homeless and struggle to survive the brutal cold every winter. To help those in need, we gather one night a year to spread our warmth through our beautiful city of Chicago - sharing tea, conversation, and kindness with those who feel Chicago’s cold shoulder the most.

Spread the Warmth is an event held by the Tiesta Tea Foundation every January to provide warmth and everyday necessities to our fellow Chicagoans in need. Each year, volunteers from across our community gather together to pass out hot tea and Warmth Kits filled with food and warm clothing items to those in shelters, soup kitchens and on city streets.

Join us this year to share a smile, share a cup and Spread the Warmth with your fellow Chicagoans.

Our 5th annual Spread the Warmth will be held on January 16th, 2020!
