Wheaton Coronavirus Response: Get Help & Get Involved



1.  You can PACK FOOD for the hungry at the Northern Illinois Food Bank.  They too are considered an essential service, and still need volunteers.  If able and well, please call 630-443-6910 to schedule your time today.


2. DROP OFF cell phone chargers for the Respiratory Therapists and Covid 19 patients at CDH.  If you have any iphone or android chargers that you no longer need, please drop them off at 1827 E. Illinois St. in Wheaton IL.  60187


3. DONATE Cleaning Supplies to Outreach Ministries, or DIAPERS for Care Center Guests through this Amazon link.  https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/37TNTRBYLAXXU?ref_=wl_share 


4.  If you are able and well, you can safely DONATE BLOOD on June 18th from 1-7pm at the Wheaton Ministry Center downtown Wheaton.  You must schedule a slot here:  https://donate.illinois.versiti.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5585228 and arrive on time at your scheduled time slot.  The entire blood drive process should take 45 minutes! 


5.  RUN the Hot Tamale Virtual 5K run with "Run for Central America" in June at https://hottamalerun.com/ The Hot Tamale Virtual 5K is the ultimate themed race that can be accomplished at any location! You can run outside, walk or use a treadmill while wearing your Hot Tamale swag. Also, you can run anywhere, anytime by yourself or with a group via Zoom (Be creative with social distancing), just get out or stay-in and have a fun time!  We will send you a Hot Tamale shirt Quaran-Team Edition and a Finisher Medal. The registration fee is just $40, and your money will directly help a family for an entire month living on less than $1 a day survive this national pandemic.


6.  DONATE folders to the Dupage County Correctional Facility so that the 375 inmates there can receive a packet of training materials for their continued education.  The National pandemic has cancelled all of their current class offerings, and they can not gather together or sign up for ministry classes such as Alpha or meditation or tradesmanship courses offered by the jail.  Help us gather enough for at least one folder for each inmate.  Order yours here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/37TNTRBYLAXXU?ref_=wl_share


7.  ELDERLY NOTES can be written by children or adults to encourage an elderly person who is stuck at home and needs a little pick me up.  Include scripture, notes or an encouraging picture.  Drop these off or mail them to 215 East Seminary Avenue.  We will try to gather 65 notes a week!
