SERVING OUR NEIGHBORS
The St. Andrew Citizenship Mentoring Center, in partnership with World Relief Wheaton, is presently active in preparing legal permanent residents for their naturalization exam. Students are mentored one-on-one, with the ultimate goal of passing the test and gaining citizenship. The instruction involves English reading and writing skill development as well as government, civics and U.S. history instruction.
Walkers from 12 churches located in Carol Stream, Bartlett, and West Chicago head out on a 5 Mile Walk Against Hunger. We walk in honor of the many people around the world who must walk miles every day to get food and clean water!
All in need are welcome every Monday evening from 5:00-6:00. Thanks to Panera Bread, in addition to distributing non-perishable food and toiletries, we are also able to provide loaves of bread, bagels, scones, muffins, sweet rolls, and cookies.
We are proud to partner with Neighborhood Food Pantries and their vision for a Hunger-free DuPage. Because of this partnership, every $1 given equals $8 of food.
The Clothing Closet is open every Monday evening from 5:00-6:00 in conjunction with our Food Pantry.
Our clothing bank is supported through the generous donations of our church and community members.
A selection of clothing for men, women, and children is presented each week.
Every month volunteers gather to prepare 150 sandwich lunches which are distributed to three sites within our community. The lunches include a bottle of water, a sandwich, condi-ments, and granola bar. They are taken to Hes-ed House, Aurora, the second largest homeless shelter in Illinois, Mutual Grounds, a domestic violence shelter for women and children, and the Jim Profitt House for homeless veterans in Chicago.
HEARTS TO HANDS
We offer them a small bag of non-perishable food. It is not an answer to the problem, but a show of concern and help. The bags are prepared by our middle and high school youth and contain water and a small meal. It is given from our hearts to their hands.
