Our festivals may be on hold this year, but we are working hard to help our neighbors. Thanks to YOU and all of your incredible donations to Family Service of Lake County – Nuestro Center, we were able to feed 200 families grocery bags filled with pork, rice, beans, masa, tortillas, potatoes, fruits, veggies and eggs. It was impactful and achieved with YOUR generosity.

Let’s keep it going! Please continue to donate so we can continue to help our community and our friends.
Special thanks to BellaRu Catering and Mis Dos Magos for the food.
Families Helping Families Chicagoland provided the Summer Fun Bags, Fill a Heart 4 Kids provided toiletries & diapers. Windy City Linen and Greco and Sons Inc, Bartlett Illinois for the trucks. Without you we wouldn’t have gotten there! Thank you Rick Roshto for the photos and Coffee Cup Productions for the video.
