Get Involved

There are lots of ways to participate.


We need sandwich chefs, drivers, packers and helpers.  Typically, it takes a volunteer staff of about 10-12 people to create the 250 - 300 meals we prepare on the last Sunday of every month.  The commitment of your time? About 1 ½ hours, from 4:00 to 5:30.

Can’t commit to every month? Come whenever you can, but let us know when you’re joining us.  St. John’s Lutheran Church is located at 1235 Wilmette Avenue in Wilmette. The church office can be reached at 847 251 1730

Donate Provisions

We’re grateful for Grand Foods, but even they can use a little assist. If you – or the company you work for – can donate bread, cookies, bottled water, fresh fruit, trail mix, granola bars, sports drinks, juice boxes or nutritious non-perishable items, we will gladly accept them.

Please contact us and we will make arrangements to either pick up your donations or have them delivered to St. John’s Lutheran Church.

Donate Money

Yes, it’s the perfect gift.   And even though requests seem to be coming from every corner of the globe these days, please understand that no amount is too small.  Your gift will help to fuel the passion (and the bus) at The Night Ministry and keep their city shelters safe and welcoming.  And of course, your contributions are completely tax-deductible.

    Please make checks payable to St. John’s Lutheran Church and send them to:
