I know your are probably inundated with worthy Giving Tuesday begging. But nowhere can your donation of any size have greater immediate impact than sharing with Compassion for Campers which serves the McHenry County unhoused who will spend all or part of each month this winter camping out or living in a vehicle. Your dollars almost immediately be used to buy the critical gear—tents, sleeping bags, pads, tarps, stoves, fuel, warm gloves, hats, and socks—as well as personal hygiene items, flashlights and batteries, and non-perishable food. Give today and a homeless person can pick them up at Community Empower Shower events at Willow Crystal Lake the first and third Fridays of the month. Not only that, but 100% of your donation will go directly to those in need. Funds are deposited in a dedicated fund of the Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation in McHenry, Illinois that cannot be used for any other purpose. In addition, the church donates all administrative expenses. Of course, donations are tax deductible.
You can donate on the congregation’s Giving Tuesday app making sure to designate the Compassion for Campers fund in the drop down menu. You can also simply send a check to Tree of Life, 6603 Bull Valley Road, McHenry, IL 60050.
