The unprecedented shutdown of public services and private businesses has put a strain on many Skokie families and disproportionately impacted our most economically vulnerable residents. We are seeking donations to assist Skokie residents who due the unique circumstances of this pandemic, such as illness, self-quarantine or service shutdowns, are unable to leave their home, have extraordinary expenses, lose employment income, or suffer other hardships.
All funds raised by this effort will be given to the Village of Skokie’s Office of Human Services to assist our neighbors in need during this difficult time. The Foundation will cover all administrative expenses of the campaign so that every dollar you contribute will go to a neighbor in need.
The Skokie Community Foundation has started off the campaign by contributing $10,000 and invites you to join us in helping to care for those in our community most impacted by the virus and its aftermath.
