Food Drive and Mitten Tree

The Sheil community is committed to outreach locally and internationally.  Our Thanksgiving Food Drive and Christmas Mitten Tree are just two of our local outreach programs.

At Thanksgiving we collect nonperishable food and grocery store gift cards for  Evanston residents.  At Christmas  Sheil collects presents for children in Evanston and agencies in the Chicago area including; Mercy Home for Boys and Girls of Chicago, Boys from the Precious Blood Ministries (support ministry for former juveniles of the Cook County Detention Center of Chicago), and Connections for the Homeless.

We always need volunteers to help sort and distribute food and gifts.  Contact Tim Higgins t-higgins@u.northwestern.edu for more information
