At North Lawndale Employment Network, we believe that everyone has the right to work. We also believe that everyone should have a turkey at Thanksgiving.
In November 2013 the SNAP/Food Stamp benefit boost created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ended. This had a major impact on the families in North Lawndale and surrounding communities in Chicago. Families saw a decrease in their income just weeks before the Thanksgiving Holiday. Many struggled to stretch what little they had to provide a festive meal for their families.
Even in these tough times, we wanted everyone to have a reason to be thankful so we started our Annual Turkey Campaign! Please join our third annual Thanksgiving In Tough Times Turkey Giveaway and help us provide 600 Chicago families with a Thanksgiving Turkey.
