Christ the King Lutheran School in Chicago, Illinois, Thanks LCC Donors for Providing Scholarships for 15 Students
Geri Brazeal, Principal at Christ the King Lutheran School in Chicago, Illinois, sent a note thanking LCC donors for generous donations of $45,000 to provide scholarships for 15 Christ the King Students.
Because Lutheran Church Charities has reached out to fellow Christians on our behalf, our children are able to remain at Christ the King and our expenses are able to be met. All 15 families have been moved to see the hand of God at work through friends of Lutheran Church Charities that they do not even know.
I write this now with tears of joy as I remember all of the things which have been done for our ministry by our friends. I am brought to Sunday’s reading in Philippians 4: 4-6, Lutheran Church Charities has ALWAYS BEEN THERE TO HELP.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand, do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
We are indeed thankful for your friendship and your ministry. God has placed us here in this part of Chicago to make a difference in the lives of those we touch. No matter what the struggles might have been, or no matter what we are doing now to help the children in our school, feed the people who are unable to put food on their table because of situations which occur in their lives or put clothes on their backs because of hardships which arise in their lives.
Thank you is not enough. As Morgan, one of our students would say if you were here now: Lutheran Church Charities - You are AMAZING!

Midwest Veterans Closet Is Grateful for Your In-Kind Donations
Over the past month, LCC has passed through several donations of household items to the Midwest Veterans Closet in North Chicago, Illinois. This month we will be passing through furniture and appliance donations.
Mary Carmody, Executive Director, Midwest Veterans Closet, sent a thank you letter for the donations and the work of LCC.
Thank you for your donation to the Midwest Veterans Closet, where it is Veterans Day EVERY DAY! Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for your kind and generous donation. Your caring support of the active-duty military, Veterans, and families living in our community is greatly appreciated.
There is no doubt that the need is great. At-risk Veterans may live in your neighborhood, or may even be a family member or friend's neighbor. Yes, these Veterans are folks just like us, who never thought they would be in a situation where they would need a hand-up. But, because of you and folks like you, this year, these Veterans, once proud soldiers, and current military members will have weather appropriate apparel and things they need. These items may include a warm jacket, thermal underwear, boots, gloves, hat, hooded sweatshirt, scarf, dishes, pots and pans, a bed, furniture, and even a job, housing, and automobile! In 2019 we served them with 207,432.2 Ibs. of food from our Food and Nutrition Resource Center.
We are truly grateful for your compassionate support and hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to Impact Veterans Lives.
With warm regards,
Midwest Veterans Closet
