As a solution-focused group, we feel the best way to offer help, is to pool our resources and donate funds to community groups that are working tirelessly to feed families in the most underserved and diverse areas in our city. So we will be collecting monetary donations that will be divided between two organizations:
The Love Fridge AND Peace Center of Rogers Park- Meal Gift Cards for the Unhoused
The Love Fridge is a mutual aid network that is truly dedicated to changing the way people think about giving and taking care of each other as well as providing stigma-free access to food 24/7 for anyone who needs it.
The money donated to The Love Fridge through this round of The Giving Project will go towards cleaning supplies, materials to build fridge shelters, electricity bills, and food to fill fridges when they are empty.
PCRP is a community center organized and run by The United Church of Rogers Park, which have been working tirelessly to help those in need in Chicago's most diverse community. They've packed and distributed hygiene kits, done supply giveaways, handed out free meals/food through their food pantry and so much more!
The money donated to PCRP through this round of The Giving Project will be used to purchase restaurant gift cards for the unhoused and others in need. The gift cards are for healthier/accessible/affordable restaurants in the neighborhood. As many of them do not have regular access to a refrigerator to keep food fresh, much less a means with which to cook said food, the gift cards can provide a lifeline to freshly prepared nutritious meals throughout the week.
