They offer food, mental wellness counseling, and other social services to individuals in need across the city. You can learn more and donate here.

The Ark

We encourage everyone to check out The Ark. For more than 50 years, they have been offering free, all-inclusive services to the large and diverse Jewish community in Chicagoland. Their compassionate and proficient team works closely with Jewish individuals who are dealing with financial, employment, medical, and emotional challenges. You can learn more and donate here.

We appreciate the work of The Greater Chicago Food Depository and its mission to end hunger by connecting our neighbors with healthy food, lifting voices, and advancing solutions that address the root causes of hunger—poverty, systemic inequity, and structural racism.

One of our favorite animal welfare charities is PAWS, which is a no-kill shelter and pet adoption agency based in Chicago. “Once safe at PAWS Chicago, every pet is treated as an individual and guaranteed life, no matter where they come from and what they need.” You can learn more and donate here.
