New Meadows Donation Drive
The transition out of foster care can be very difficult for young adults who age out, with barriers such as histories of trauma, uncertain educational and professional futures, and a lack of financial and emotional resources. In fact, 20 percent of youth who age out of the foster care system become homeless immediately. Beyond advocating for policy reform and becoming a foster parent, you can help by donating new and like-new items for New Meadows, a nonprofit that offers to furnish transitional housing, among other services, for youth previously in foster care. Needs include basic necessities including toilet paper, cleaning supplies, dish racks, toilet plungers, and dish soap. Peninsula Lodge #128, IOOF, 4834 N Lombard, noon-4 pm, FREE
