Pop Up Pantry

Help us greet our new neighbors!

In anticipation of our move to 5150, we're hosting a Pop Up Pantry to greet our new neighbors! The Pantry will have all sorts of household supplies and personal items that are always needed when you move into a new home (you know, like that shower curtain you forgot about). These supplies will be free to the residents of 5150, and we need your help in gathering them!

If you'd like to donate funds to the Pop Up Pantry, use the button to the left! We will use these funds to fulfill the specific needs of our new neighbors that we aren't able to cover with donations from our registry.

Donating Supplies

We are accepting funds, Target gift cards, paper goods, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and household supplies such as pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and bed linens. We are hosting a drop off day on February 12, 2022 - more details will be announced soon! We have created a registry at Target that you can purchase needed supplies from (including those gift cards!). Instructions to purchase from our registry are below.

Volunteering

Friendship Community Place is recruiting volunteers for our Pop-Up Move In Pantry to welcome new residents at 5150 N Northwest HWY!

Help organize and staff the pantry filled with moving, cleaning, and household supplies. The pantry will "pop-up" when the building opens, likely in late December/early January.

Volunteers will receive an email invite to orientation and a link to sign up for shifts as soon as opening date is available! All volunteers MUST attend the orientation session on December 18 to participate.

Email info@fpcchicago.org with any questions.
