Lazarus House Community Thanksgiving Feast

November 24, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Lazarus House Invites Community to Thanksgiving Feast

Lazarus House warmly invites you to join its staff, guests, and many supporters at our annual Thanksgiving Feast to be held on Thursday, November 24, 2016 at the Salvation Army St. Charles Tri-City Corps, 1710 S. 7th Ave., St. Charles. The event will run from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm with dining beginning at noon.

The feast has become an established tradition in the community. Not only are Lazarus House guests blessed by the outpouring of generosity and compassion exhibited by those who attend, the feast has also become the family meal for many who live by themselves or do not have family close by.

For those able to cook, a dish to pass is most appreciated. Food should arrive ready to serve between 11:30 and 11:45 in a disposable container. Needed dishes and supplies are posted on the website:

There is no cost to attend, but we would greatly appreciate a courtesy call or email letting us know if you are able to contribute a dish and/or plan on attending.  Please contact Ellen at630-587-2144 or

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

Julia H.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
