An wonderful, inspiring organization. I love volunteering here and love to be part of the family. What a terrific group.
I started volunteering at Care for Real just a couple of months ago, after I learned about it from a Board member and another friend who was working there part time. It isn't my neighborhood so I hadn't been aware of this fabulous organization before. I knew little about the intense (and increasing due to the pandemic) food insecurity in this part of Chicago. Care for Real does a wonderful job serving their community with dedication and respect. They had to "pivot" their processes due to COVID19 and they seem to be doing a great job. They even started a second "pop up" location due to need. They also have a Clothes Closet and a Pet Pantry to offer their clients. I love volunteering here - the staff and other volunteers are very professional and very friendly as well. And I feel they appreciate my help too!
Care for Real is an amazing agency providing free programs and services to Chicagoans in need including food distribution five times a week, deliveries to the homebound, a clothing shop, a pet pantry, case management referrals a job program. Every day the make a difference in our community. Dollars donated will go far in helping them keep up with the record numbers of folks turning to them for assistance during these tough economic times.
