"I was, and still am, speechless at what was provided for me today. I do not need to purchase ANY meat, chicken, and fish (or the other extra treats that were thrown in!) for Yom Tov. Thank you for helping to ease the financial burden and providing us with menuchas hanefesh."
"I was just at the warehouse picking up our order this evening. My heart is uplifted. Just a short while ago, I was thinking, “How are we going to do it this year?" I feel supported. I feel part of a community. And I’m just so grateful. Thank you!"
"Having received both STW and LIHEAP, I just want to say thank you to your government benefits assistance department. You were extremely helpful, proactive, and professional as you helped save my family a small bundle this winter. Thank you for being there for our community!"
"Thank you again so very much! My son found a really nice suit, hat, shirt, and tie for his bar mitzvah. It made him so happy, and it made me so happy to see him happy and to know I won’t have to dig deeper into my debts for that. Really appreciate this help!"
"When my husband lost his job last year, you covered 9 therapies a week in full from December until June. And some in the summer! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"Please extend my thanks to your entire staff as well as all the volunteers and donors that helped make this Yom Tov a little more heilig and a little less stressful for my family. Every step has been handled with the utmost dignity and respect."
"Thank you for providing clothing for my family – it has made a very big difference in our lives. The selection available is wonderful. The staff are so helpful, make me feel comfortable, and always ask if there’s something else I need."
"We are so grateful for the assistance we received from Chicago Chesed Fund without which we couldn’t have managed the costs of a medical assessment."
"The Chicago Chesed Fund personnel helped me to receive multiple rooms of furniture after I had a flood in my home. They attended to every need with kindness and expertise."
"We wanted to express our deepest appreciation and thanks for all the many things that we have benefitted from CCF. From the clothing for the family and toys for Yom Tov, the school supplies and furniture, and all the services that benefit us and the entire community."
