Pastor Marty Marks of Immanuel Lutheran Church in DeKalb, Illinois, is grateful for your financial assistance for Danika and her family during their time of need. We are sharing an update that Rev. Marks received from Danika.
My at-home treatment of oral chemotherapy and hormone blockers is going okay. Because I am stage four and the cancer had gotten into the marrow of my right arm, they have to watch for cancer in my blood. We are praying that the cancer is gone. God is holding me, and your support is very much appreciated.
God has given me my new calling of being a cottage baker! I recently launched a small business out of my kitchen, providing baked goods to what is, so far a small, but loyal client base. My sales, so far, are covering the kids’ swim and gymnastics classes that we have been blessed to be able to keep them in for normalcy, but I’m hoping to build my customer base so that I can also help cover car payments.
We are looking at getting a third-row vehicle to support the direction that our family will be going in over the course of the next ten years that we will likely have the vehicle that we will be getting with your generous donations. We are hoping to get to at least $8,000 for a down payment to get our monthly payments into something manageable with our current income, and so far have raised just over $5,000 towards our goal.
We are absolutely grateful for Lutheran Church Charities putting this fund together for us!
Thank you for your generous support.
We ask that you prayerfully consider donating towards the down payment for a vehicle and help make a difference for Danika and her family.
Thank You for Your Generosity
Rev. David Nelson, Interim Pastor, Saint Luke Church, Chicago, Illinois, is grateful for your financial assistance for Marcia and her family. Your support has made a significant difference in helping her maintain her property and financial stability.
Marcia and her family have been members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saint Luke in Chicago for over 60 years. She currently finds herself in a challenging financial situation and is struggling to meet the financial obligation of paying the first installment of her 2023 property taxes.
However, the current bill is more than her current resources allows her to handle. As someone who has always faithfully met her financial obligations throughout her life, does not want to fall behind on something as important as her property taxes.
It is her deepest desire to stay in her home but is fearful that she will not be able to
do so without, once again, calling on your gracious assistance.
Thank you for taking the time to consider her request
Dr. David C. Nelson, Interim Pastor
Saint Luke Church, Chicago
We ask that you prayerfully consider donating to this cause and help make a difference in Marcia's life. Every donation counts and will go towards ensuring that Marcia and her family have a safe and stable home. Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
The LCC Human Care Ministry team collaborated with Pastor Todd Roberts at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Norridge, Illinois, to provide essential furniture for a disabled adult who recently moved into an independent living apartment.
We want to share a heartfelt thank you to individual donors and Junkluggers, who provided the furniture. We are also grateful to the volunteers who picked up and delivered the furniture.
Thank you for making Richard’s dream of having his apartment a reality.
Thank You for Your Generosity

Your Donations Make A Difference In The Lives Of Those In Need
Thanks to the generosity of a donor, Lutheran Church Charities was able to provide a much-needed gift of a van to a single mother of six. Jessica had lost her only means of transportation in a multi-vehicle accident and was unable to afford a replacement due to mounting medical bills.
This thoughtful donation has enabled her to resume her daily routine, including driving her children to school and going to work. We are grateful for the donor's generosity and the positive impact it has had on this family's life.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever. It has been quite a year for Jessica, the widowed mother of six, and her children, but God has been faithful. She welcomed her sixth child, a son, in March. He continues to grow and is crawling and preparing to walk.
We rejoice that the mother was finally able to receive some support for the children from social security. She is currently trying to work multiple shifts at UPS to provide for her children.
For months, we prayed for an SUV for Jessica and her family. It became a critical need when she was in a car accident, and her van was damaged beyond repair in October. We are thankful she and her oldest son were not seriously injured in the crash. Our prayers were answered when someone recently donated a vehicle to LCC that could meet her needs.
Thank you so much for your care!
Pastor Doug Warmann
Trinity Lutheran Church
Hear from Jessica herself in a video where she shares her incredible story.
The vehicle will be an essential resource for these mothers, enabling them to take care of their daily responsibilities, attend doctor appointments, and work. We are grateful for the partnership with Redeeming Life Outreach Ministries and for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of these mothers. Thank you to our generous donor for their support!
As the winter season approaches, the refugee community is in dire need of warm clothes and coats to survive the harsh weather conditions. Your generous donations made a significant difference in the lives of these individuals who are already facing tremendous challenges.
Your contributions offer not only warmth but also a sense of love and care to those who have been displaced from their homes. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Hampshire, Illinois, has once again shown their compassion for the unhoused community by donating new shoes and socks through a Thrivent Action Team Grant.
This act of kindness has not only provided new footwear for those in need, but it has also conveyed a message of love and care. We commend their generosity and hope that their actions inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
These much-needed items will be given out at the Refugee Store in downtown Chicago, and we are thrilled that our efforts will make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. Once again, we would like to express our gratitude to Remax Realty and everyone who participated in this wonderful event.
All donated items are given directly to refugees at no cost. The leadership team was extremely grateful for the donations. If you want to contribute to the store, they accept all sizes of heavy winter coats, winter boots, all clothing, essential household goods, and warm blankets.
To donate items, contact Denise Snider at email@example.com
On Saturday, October 21, the Lutheran Church Charities Human Care team delivered shoes to First St. Paul Lutheran Church in Chicago.
The shoes were donated to the monthly foot clinic by Naperville Running Company. The foot clinic offers professional care from a team of podiatrists who serve the homeless community.
If you want to donate new white socks and gently used shoes, contact Denise Snider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The books will help fill the shelves of the school library, and the monetary donations will support the students' scholarship fund. Pastor John Brazeal, Principal Geri, and the teachers are extremely grateful for your donations. With tears in their eyes, they explained that the children could not go to school if they had not received the support.
Thank you for your generosity and encouragement!
LCC Human Care Team Partners with Habitat for Humanity ReStore to Donate Items to Shower Up and New Life Centers of Chicagoland
The LCC Human Care Team partnered with Habitat for Humanity ReStore to donate towels, hygiene supplies, pillows, and Bibles to Shower Up and New Life Centers of Chicagoland.
Shower Up serves the homeless community by providing basic hygiene and personal care and bringing dignity, hope, and love.
New Life Centers of Chicagoland provides stable housing for families transitioning from shelters while helping them process their traumatic journey.
As you may know, PYHT has outgrown the space in our church where we operate our food pantry and food rescue-redistribution programs, requiring us to expand into a larger space and erect a building on our church property. The foundation and building will begin in the Spring of 2024 once adequate funding is received to cover the costs. We still have $20,000-$60,000 to raise by the end of April if we receive no grant funding by then.
One of the many lessons I have learned is always waiting on the Lord, His timing is perfect. His patience never wears thin, even when mine is hanging by a thread.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
