Lower Wacker Drive . . . packing lunches
Fridays, 1:00 – 3:00pm at Beverly Yoga Center
June 16 | July 14 | August 11
The Lower Wacker Mission serves homeless people 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 people make the lunches and then a small group distributors them. The people served are mostly men. Many are there with drug and alcohol addictions and mental health issues. Many of these people served are at the lowest part of their life and have no means for food or support.
Join Beverly Yoga Center to pack 180 lunches. They will be delivered to Lower Wacker Drive by a group of separate volunteers. Children ages 8 and up are welcome to help pack lunches.
