Share The Warmth
God has placed upon our hearts to provide winter garments for the children in Sauk Village, IL and we’re calling it, “Share The Warmth”.
The national unemployment rate is 5.5%. As of April, the unemployment rate for Sauk Village, IL was 6.2%. Four of the top ten cities in Illinois are in our immediate area: Harvey, 11.4%; Dolton 10.1%; Chicago Heights, 9.4 %; and Calumet City 9.3%. These numbers, according to Homefacts.com, only reflect the number of people applying for unemployment benefits.
There are three schools in Sauk Village, IL with a total of 1,638 students. Last year we outfitted over 75 children with brand new coats, hats, gloves, scarves and school uniforms. This was approximately one child per classroom. Our goal for this year is to double that number.
We’re very excited about this opportunity to do the Lord’s work outside the four walls of the church and thank you in advance for your continued support.
