Ways to Help

We Rely On You

For almost 40 years, Care for Real has relied on the generosity of neighbors and the efforts of dedicated volunteers to operate.

We receive no government funding for ongoing food purchases. Rather, we are funded through cash, in-kind donations and grants from individuals, the religious community, businesses and foundations.

Your tax-deductible contribution, in any amount, will make a real difference in the lives of the neighbors we serve. Please go to our Donation Page for ways that you can financially contribute.

You can also help by

  • Designating Care for Real as the beneficiary of donations you make to the Greater Chicago Food Depository by adding Agency #A00022 to your check.
  • Organizing a food drive.
  • Volunteering
  • Participating in the annual Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk.
  • Donating non-perishable food, gently-used clothing or personal care products.

For information or to arrange to drop off donations, please call (773) 769-6182 or e-mail us.
