Abbott Champions for Kids – My Donation #AbbottCFK #CBias #ChampionsforKids

If you are a regular reader here, you will know that I am working with Champions For Kids to make kids lives better in my area. At Christmas time, I worked with them to create a stocking full of Disney products. Now, I am working with them and Abbott Nutrition to help those who don’t have enough foods.

The charity I choose to donate a Snack Pack to was the Catholic Charities here in Chicago.  The food pantries in the southwest suburbs of Chicago serve approximately 2,800 people a month (and this is 2010 – 2011 statistic. I can guarantee that it is much worse now.) The supper programs that Catholic Charities serve gave away more than 9,000 hot meals in the southwest suburbs. The Catholic Charities summer lunch program provided 282,000 meals to children that summer.  Since the economy tanked, the need for this food pantry didn’t double – it tripled!  It just makes me ill that there are people in my own community that are food poor.

Here is my shop for this campaign and what we were able to buy and donate to Catholic Charities:

As you can see, we were able to put together a pretty good assortment of snacks to donate. Catholic Charities was also very grateful for our donation (Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take any pictures of them. They just allowed me take a picture of their food pantry). I just wish I could have done more. What are you doing for your community?

  1. This is so cool! These donations are really going to provide kids healthy treats that they can consume everyday! I hope they can reach out the world doing this. I'm glad to hear that there is still a movement like this. Thank you for it.

  2. Great minds think alike. I also donated to Catholic Charities in my county. It's a very worthy organization

Calling all my tofu fans!  Firm and extra firm tofu is packed in water to keep it fresh. However, if you don’t remove the water, your tofu can be pretty plain.  By removing this water, the tofu can absorb the flavors of spices, marinade, or other foods. Tofu is often called a wonder food because […]

Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
