Across America and in every community, there are families struggling to meet their basic needs. This year Church of the Cross will again be participating in the Operation Warm Coat Program. By donating money for NEW winter coats, you can help relieve the burden of poverty and bring the gift of warmth to children in need at Lakeview Elementary School in Hoffman Estates.  A new coat allows families to stretch limited financial resources to necessities, such as food and shelter. The unfortunate reality is that these schools request even more coats than we can fund. Most of the children receiving these coats are part of the federal free or reduced school breakfast/lunch program so having a warm coat to get to school often means their meals for the day.
     Thank you for your consideration. We will be accepting donations until Sunday, September 27th. Please put the notation "Warm Coats" in your check memo line or envelope.
Please click HERE to go to our website and scroll down on the page to see current Notes from Pastor Julie. It includes an update on re-opening the building. (updated on August 19)
