We believe that love is called to go to those in need, be it across the aisle, across the street or around the world. We believe that love is not called to sit and watch but run to the crises.
Each month SIWC collects items to donate to local ministries. During Christmastime we put together gift boxes for children in the Cairo area and during the school year we organize and pack a snack bag each week. Currently, during the COVID-19 pandemic we are partnering with the St. Louis Area Food Bank to provide a mobile food bank for our area.
We desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus and always have a generous heart.
Love Goes to Cairo
The Cairo School District has the highest percentage of children in poverty in the state of Illinois and the 15th highest in the country. For these kids, evenings and weekends are marked by hunger pains instead of play.
Each month we provide 330 snack bags for kids in Cairo to take home. We are always accepting donations to help fill snack bags. Please make sure items are individually wrapped.
