Dear Donors


In January, Debby will end her tenure as the Director of Project Concern. She wishes to thank all or donors and supporters for all their help over the past 12 years. It’s caring community members like you that make a difference.


As the year comes to an end and Debby prepares to say farewell, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our mission of serving those in need. This year, due to the closing of the Pick ‘N Save in Cudahy, our donations of food have been dramatically cut. Your donation will go directly to ensure that the 1,050 men, women, seniors and children we serve on average per month will not go hungry.


The staff and volunteers have been your stand-in this past years receiving the thank you’s, the hugs, and even the tears of appreciation from the people we serve. Please know your gifts have been and will continue to be deeply appreciated.


May your holidays be filled with all the wonder of the season.
