THE GIVING TREE | Help Is Needed


There are many families and individuals in need and through these local charitable organizations, you can help. There are many ways you can give back and even a small amount goes a long way. Please share and invite your friends and family to give back, too!


Help Loaves & Fishes.....

You can make the holidays a sign of a brighter future. Last year, Loaves & Fishes provided food to 20,266 individuals in Naperville and DuPage County. With your help, Loaves & Fishes can provide a family with a complete holiday meal for just $30. Visit our website to donate online, or mail a donation to 1871 High Grove Lane, Naperville, IL 60540. You are giving more than a holiday meal— You are providing HOPE.
