GREATER SPRINGFIELD INTERFAITH ASSOCIATION

URGES WINTER FOOD & CLOTHING COLLECTIONS 

 

Beyond the ripple effects of the recent government shutdown, many local residents continually face food and clothing insecurity.  Even as shelters and warming stations remain open, the recent frigid temperatures place some at a particular risk.

 

The Greater Springfield Interfaith Association (GSIA) urges members of the Springfield faith community respond to the need for assistance via food and clothing support.

 

We recognize that most faith communities already work in relationship with particular agencies and encourage all to direct their collected items and cash donations to those groups. For those who have yet to establish such a working relationship, the below links will provide a list of organizations in Sangamon County who offer food & clothing assistance.
