Willow Creek North Shore’s annual global compassion campaign seeks to promote awareness, engagement, and action through partnerships with churches around the world. These faith communities are committed to the holistic transformation of their communities, empowering children, families, and neighborhoods. Through our partners and your generosity, we have the opportunity to make a global impact in Jesus’ name.
Education. Families.Nutrition.
This year we’re focusing on three areas of giving: education, families, and nutrition. We’ll support initiatives to provide educational resources for children, support for families, and sustainable sources of food and water to communities. Together, our goal is to eliminate barriers and help children and families around the world reach their God-given potential.
