Asylum Seekers Donation Site Open

| 0
Asylum seekers from Central and South America have been arriving on buses sent from Texas. The city of Chicago is taking action in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies to welcome and ensure these migrants have access to shelter, food and other resources. Our Northern Illinois Conference has arranged for collection sites at several churches in each district to be convenient, centralized locations in order to bring donated items to the city of Chicago to support these immigrants. St. Andrew has agreed to be a drop-off site for our district.
You can bring your donations when you come for worship or during our
collection times of Monday, 10-1, Thursday 10-2 and Friday 4-6
