Bienvenidos a Elgin Welcome Kit Update + Drop Off Instructions

Thank you to everyone who has already signed up or dropped things off at church. We are well on our way to helping immigrant families!


Before delivering your items to UUCE, please put your name on the items/boxes to help us keep track of what is arriving.  Tape a note on the items/bags, or write directly on a box. This will help us tremendously in organizing the Apartment Kits.

Here are three options to ensure your contributions are ready by our December 15 deadline:

  1. Bring items to church on Sundays during services through December 12 from 10 am – 12 noon.  Put items in the foyer inside the front doors.
  2. You may call the church office at 847-888-0668 to arrange drop off on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Please call ahead first to confirm the church will be unlocked and someone is there.
  3. If you need to make other arrangements and/or have someone pick things up from you before December 15, please contact me, Lydia Larrabee, Mary Alice Masonick or Elizabeth Olson. 

If you have furniture to donate, reach out and we’ll put you in touch with First Presbyterian Church in Elgin who is coordinating distribution.  Thanks again to everyone for your support. We’re so very proud of our UUCE effort, generosity and commitment to supporting our new neighbors with dignity and compassion.
