Are you looking for a way to give back to the community? May is PADS Month and there are several opportunities to serve those in the greatest need. The PADS® Overnight Emergency Shelter is the second largest shelter in the State of Illinois. Each night 155 to 207 men, women and children line up outside the doors of Hesed House seeking a place to sleep, shower, do laundry, eat a meal, or find medical and legal assistance.

Our next PADS Mission day is May 19th.Please sign up to make lunches at Calvary for the individuals staying at the Hesed House. Volunteers are also needed to assist in feeding and serving the individuals and families at Hesed House If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, contact the church office.

The Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry is a member of the Northern Illinois Food Bank Cooperative. Those who use our Food Pantry are our neighbors, friends, people with disabilities, seniors, low income families, and families who have lost their jobs.
