CHAPEL CARE

WHAT IS IT?

We are so blessed to be able to serve the community through The Chapel Palatine food pantry. We exist to show the love and generosity of Jesus by coming alongside people who need support.   Every week we put together food, household items, and fresh produce to help any person or familiy in need. Each month we feed over 1,000 guests.  This is made possible by community partners and individual donations.

“TRULY I TELL YOU, WHATEVER YOU DID FOR ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF MINE, YOU DID FOR ME” MATTHEW 25:40

DONATIONS

When food donations are brought on Sunday, they can be placed in the shopping cart found in front of the food pantry office door. To drop food off another day of the week, items can be left inside door #1 on the south side of the building.

Each week of the month, there is a rotation of items that are collected and given out.

Here are a list of items that are always needed:

FLOUR, COOKING OIL, PASTA, BEANS, SUGAR, WASHER PODS, PASTA SAUCE, RICE, SHAMPOO, DEODORANT, TOILET PAPER, TOOTHPASTE, TORTILLAS, BROTH, CEREAL, GRANOLA BARS

MILK AND EGG SPONSORS

In addition to the weekly donations, we are looking for milk and egg sponsors. Sixty of each are purchased every other week at $250/set. If you are interested, please contact Michelle at mheberling@chapel.org  or Erin at Erin.fleming@comcast.net.

 

 

BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK

We currently send food home every Friday with 102 students at Paddock Elementary School in Palatine who face food insecurities. $100 pays for weekend food for 1 child for the entire year. If you are interested, please contact Michelle at mheberling@chapel.org  or Erin at Erin.fleming@comcast.net.

HOST A DRIVE

If you can’t sponsor at this time but want to help, a food drive is a great way to collect daily needed items. You can host at your school, business, or neighborhood, etc. so the community can get involved as well! See above for items always in need – non-perishables only please.
