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, Illinois area and during the school year we organize and pack a snack bag for each student one weekend a month. We also host a Reach Food Bank one time a month in Cairo, Illinois that is open to all residents.
We desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus and always have a generous heart.
We like to say that “love is, love does and LOVE GOES!

Back to School Drive
Love is, love does and Love Goes. This July & August we are continuing to help students going back to school! Here is the list of items we are collecting. We want to continue to fill those bins during this special Love Goes drive!
We will be helping students in Cairo and other school districts in our region. Let’s overflow the bins and help students go back to school in our region.
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.
Snack Items Needed
Rice Krispie Treats
Peanut Butter Crackers
