Running with a Conscience

This Sunday 45,000 runners will hit the pavement for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. We at the Lincoln Park Community Shelter want to wish all of them good luck (especially Dan – our DePaul social work intern)! As the runners pass through the neighborhoods of Chicago, we hope that they will keep in mind the approximately 21,000 individuals that go homeless every night, living within those neighborhoods. Help us fight homelessness in the Lincoln Park neighborhood by donating to our mission. For other ways to help LPCS combat homelessness please visit our website to learn more.

Taste of Fall was a success!

A Taste of Fall 2009 was held on Thursday, September 24th, 6:30-10:30pm at Goose Island's Wrigleyville location. Guests enjoyed beer and appetizers paired to bring out the best in each other, while listening to live music. VIP ticket holders enjoyed an interactive Goose Island “Beer Academy” session with specially paired cheeses by Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine. A great time was had by all! In all, the event raised almost $8,000 for LPCS' programs!
