Support Hope's Front Door

Over the past 15 years, Hope’s Front Door (HFD) has provided emergency assistance to those in desperate need who include the unemployed, underemployed, homeless, seniors and disabled…more than 17,000 individuals and their families in Downers Grove and five neighboring villages. After determining their immediate needs through compassionate conversation, clients are helped with food, medical, dental and/or transportation vouchers, plus a clear pathway into the network of social agencies that can assist them with long-lasting changes to end the cycle of living crisis to crisis.

The Missions, Justice & Community work area recently made a donation to HFD. There are a number of ways you can personally support the organization:

Opportunity to Support 2015 United Church of Rogers Park Summer Camp

Youth InTent: Tent Rentals

Youth In TentFor the past thirteen years, our Youth InTent program has served our church and community by renting out tents, tables and chairs for graduation, birthday, anniversary and other summer celebrations, as well as neighborhood block parties, weddings and wedding receptions.

DGFUMC youth take care of delivery, set-up and take-down. In return they receive credit toward mission and choir trips.

Our prices are competitive with commercial vendors and benefit a wonderful program. Without revenue from Heritage Fest parking, our Youth InTent program is the largest fundraiser for our youth program. Help Chapel Choir fund its annual choir tour.

For prices and information please see the Youth InTent Reservation Contract at the link below.  Feel free to contact Don Dunham with any questions.
