Volunteer at our Social Service Center this spring!
We do this by empowering people through access to creative youth development and social services that help individual build the skills they need to break the cycle of poverty and lead fulfilling lives.
Your dollars go far to help build brighter futures.
When you donate to Chicago Lights, your gift goes directly toward programs that create opportunities for youth and adults to break the cycle of poverty. Make a gift today to change lives.
Every dollar you give goes directly toward empowering youth in need.
Beginning June 19, 2021, the Chicago Lights Social Service Center will begin accepting gently used clothing donations.
Accepted donations include gently used men’s and woman’s clothing in all sizes, with a high need for L, XL, XXL, and XXXL sizes. New underwear and socks are also being accepted. Clothing must be clean, in good condition and free from stains, rips, or tears.
We are NOT accepting children’s clothing, household items, electronics, books/magazines, food, furniture, medicine, or used underwear/socks.
