Food and Gift Distribution
Wednesday, December 16, 2020
Leman Middle School
The holidays look dramatically different this year for many of us. While we may be stressing about the number of family and friends at our dinner table, less fortunate Chicagoans are stressing about the amount of food that will be on the table.
Uniting for the Holidays is a festive “drive-through” event where thousands of dinners and gifts are being distributed to residents in need in several suburban locations ahead of the holidays, including West Chicago. The West Chicago event takes place at 4.p.m. on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 in West Chicago at Leman Middle School, 238 E. Hazel Street. The food distribution is first come, first served. A map detailing the traffic pattern for this event is found below.
Uniting For The Holidays is presented by Regional Presenting Sponsor IlliniCare Health (soon to be Aetna Better Health of Illinois). A full list of sponsors can be found on the website.
Individuals who wish to support this effort through a donation, may do so through the United Way of Metro Chicago website.
