Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a nonprofit organization that believes food is the foundation for all other progress. To a starving child, hope can only truly begin once a reliable source of nutritious food has been established.
Painters District Council 14 is proud to once again partner with Rebuilding Together® Metro Chicago. We have expanded our annual rebuilding day volunteer event to encompass 100 days of donated skilled labor for one hundred Chicago Heights and South-Side Chicago homes in need!
It’s that time of year, where the DC14 Women’s Committee held its annual book drive to donate books to local nonprofit Open Books. We are proud of our association with Open Books whose cooperative efforts with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program support literacy throughout Chicagoland by providing free books to children in need. Age-appropriate titles are selected by a panel of experts and sent directly to the child’s home. The books arrive by mail every month, often the first mail a child receives, from birth until the child turns five.
Opioids are responsible for 115 deaths per day. These prescriptions run rampant in the construction industry due to the rigorous work and injuries we encounter. Addiction is real and destroys families.
