THANKSGIVING MEAL BOX DRIVE

Parking Lot of Zealous Art Studio
653 W. Stephenson St. - Freeport, IL
United We Stand is excited for an opportunity to unite the community by blessing those less fortunate this upcoming holiday season. Our project's mission is to donate a complete Thanksgiving Meal Box to roughly 100 area families that may be in need.
We are looking to you, the Community, to help us meet that goal. We have secured the vendor to provide the meal boxes, however monetary donations are currently being accepted to help cover the cost of these meals. To donate please click here. If you would like to donate by cash or check please stop by the United Way of Northwest Illinois' office at 524 W. Stephenson St.
