Neighborhood FORWARD Partnered with Fathers Who Care to Help Feed Chicago Families this Thanksgiving
The two organizations, in partnership with Neighborhood FORWARD, worked together to collect funds and food to distribute among families ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. This year’s efforts helped serve close to 500 families.
“This year has been especially hard to move forward due to COVID-19. It’s extremely difficulty for those who were already struggling before the pandemic,” said Reverend Walter Jones, founder and executive director of Fathers Who Care and chair of Neighborhood FORWARD Chicago. “We are blessed to have celebrated Thanksgiving through our food drives and will continue our work to give back during these hard times.”
Jones says the drive was an opportunity to remind all Chicagoans to give grace to their neighbors who may be struggling to get by.
Fathers Who Care is a vocal advocate for youth, seniors, and those willing to work together for social change and responsible fatherhood involvement. They travel to every corner of the community to help children and families in need.
