Helping Hands . . . committed to serve those in need

Lower Wacker Drive . . . packing lunches
Join the Beverly Yoga Center to pack 180 lunches for the Lower Wacker Mission. The Mission serves the homeless who sleep under Lower Wacker Drive. The Mission has been providing lunches, hot coffee, blankets, clothing and items for personal needs every Saturday morning for over 10 years. A large network of volunteers make the lunches and then a separate group distributes them. The people served are mostly men. Many are there with drug and alcohol addictions and mental health issues. Most of these people served are at the lowest part of their life and have no means for food or support.
