"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
This year we entered our 9th year of UMatter Winter Drive with a goal of providing care bags for 400 shelter beds we adopted. Our hope is always to see the power of people come together, to share the multiple reasons youth and adults experience homelessness but also to help highlight the humanity over the circumstance. Every partnership, every donation, every volunteer is a building stone that helps us serve those in difficult seasons.
Thank you to our amazing partners at Starbucks Foundation for your support and team of volunteers, Wintrust Bank for choosing One Heart One Soul as your choice of charity, Wintrust Bank Logan Square for opening your space to host our packing event, LinkedIn for hosting collection boxes, Women of LinkedIn Chicago for created 64 filled care bags, Monarch Thrift Shop for donating toiletries and socks, Jennifer of Fulton Grace for hosting an amazing packing event with Arete Renovations...and you all.
We invite you into our UMatter 2019 moments, more found on our Instagram page @OneHeart1Soul. Thank you all for helping 400+ people in seasons of homelessness prepare for winter.
