#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that encourages us all to give back to our communities. The Night Ministry invites you to join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday this year by supporting our mission through giving, serving, and advocating.
There are several ways to give on #GivingTuesday and support our mission.
Make a financial gift online or encourage your friends to do the same. And thanks to a challenge grant from a generous donor and long-time supporter of our work, donations may be doubled! Eligible gifts from new donors or increased donations from current donors will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $6,250 per donor.
Host a Facebook Fundraiser on our behalf.
Sign up to prepare sack suppers or meals for those whom we serve at our Health Outreach Bus or The Crib, our overnight shelter for young adults. Prepare the food at home and drop it off with us, and then we will serve it at the Bus and The Crib.Follow this link to our meal calendar to find out when we need food.
We are asking our supporters who live in Illinois to commit to writing, emailing, and calling their state legislators in early 2021 and asking them to learn about and prioritize the needs of our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness and poverty.
All you have to do is fill out this form. Tell us who you are, where you live, and how we can get in touch with you. Then, in January, you'll receive a tool kit from The Night Ministry that includes sample letters, e-mails, or phone scripts which you can use to contact your state legislators.
Here's another way to get involved in advocacy. Join our LampLight Lunch on Friday, December 8, at 12 pm, for a discussion about what advocacy is, why it's important, and how you can be an advocate Register for this virtual event here.
