The Chesed Fund is not just a food pantry but also has clothes for adults and children, toiletries and school supplies. I was happy to find out clients are allowed to shop privately. They come in one designated door and are allowed to shop one family at a time. Volunteers are not in the building when clients are shopping. The Chesed Fund services primarily the Jewish community in Lincolnwood but anyone from the area who qualifies is welcome at the pantry.

Chesed Fund: The Place to Turn for Help
This is a great place to volunteer and if you are looking for Mitzvah hours for B'nai Mitzvah or just want to volunteer this is a wonderful place with lots of stocking to be done. I know our students would find this work rewarding and they would feel as if they had contributed to a worthwhile cause. They collect everything from hats, shoes, school supplies, baby buggies and bicycles.

Let me know if check any of these projects and better yet send me a picture!
