See your impact through HOPE Packs!

Our HOPE Packs Supporters!

There are no top donors to display.


During this time of unprecedented unemployment, families need more help then ever to provide the tools for their child's education. This is a partnership between Elim (Assembly), YMEN (Young Men's Educational Network),  Lampstand Ministries, Westside Christian School, and Lawndale Community Church to provide HOPE Packs to many of the children in the North Lawndale community.

You can help meet that need through HOPE Packs.  

HOPE Packs are a "DOUBLE BLESSING" - providing much needed school supplies to under-resourced children AND meaningful work for adults with disabilities.

Your $24 donation provides a box full of essential school supplies to a local child in need, as well as compensation to an adult with disabilities who assembles that HOPE Pack with care.

There are over 900 children  all across Lawndale that  urgently need your help!   Your HOPE Packs gift opens the door to create connections in this community. It also equips the children with the school supplies they need to be successful in school, and to have a hope-filled future.

Give HOPE today!

Mission Partner

Central to our programs is our mission: "To prepare young men and women in North Lawndale for leadership by helping them grow in their faith and character, develop a love for learning, and use their talents to serve the community and strengthen our families."

To engage students in dynamic, Christian education that nurtures and challenges students to develop intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, creatively and socially, so they are equipped to lead and serve as Christians in the world.

Lampstand Ministries is an urban ministry for the west-side of Chicago, serving the Lawndale, Garfield Park, Austin and Humboldt Park areas. Lampstand Ministries strives to have a life-changing impact by bringing the love of Christ to those who are looking for help. We are a bridge between urban ministries, between the suburbs and the city, between different denominations and races, and, ultimately, between people and Jesus Christ. We partner with 25 different urban ministries, and coordinate 1,800 volunteers a year.

Lawndale Community Church is a nondenominational Christian Church that seeks to provide a place to worship Jesus Christ. We place importance on a personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ and growth in Him through the study of God’s Word – the Bible. The church is to be a witness of Christ’s Gospel by meeting both the spiritual and physical needs of the community through involvement in people’s lives.

Bringing HOPE to ALL! It’s hard to imagine a program that brings more blessings than HOPE Packs. Started in an effort to provide Elim’s adults with difficult to find, meaningful assembly work, your support and efforts have resulted in hundreds of thousands of school supply and food kits for children and their families worldwide.
