On average, 70 individuals representative of a family size of 6 carry away free food including USDA meats, fruits and vegetables.
In addition, our participants have their pick of new and gently used clothes, toiletries, household goods, toys and school supplies – all donated and or funded through tax deductible charitable contributions. ATTCOM’s counselors and volunteers are on hand to assist and provide invaluable advice, information, resources, news of employment opportunities as well as make referrals to appropriate social service organizations.
In partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, ATTCOM distributed over 8000 bags of food in 2018. Through generous donations from it’s partners and volunteers, ATTCOM distributed more than 385 warm coats, hats, scarfs and gloves.
