Good Neighbor Radiothon
Friday, December 11th
Broadcasting Live On 780AM and 105.9FM From 5:00AM to 10:00PM
The Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Club® is a monthly giving program, made up of generous people like you who have decided to take on hunger and homelessness in their community.
The program is vital to helping hungry and homeless men, women and children get back on their feet. Your donation will help support the Bed & Bread Club here in Greater Chicagoland. Last year, The Salvation Army fed on average of 4,000 people each day and sheltered 1,200 men, women and children each night in our communities.
We urge you to consider joining, because when you do, you help us accomplish so much here in Greater Chicagoland. A donation of $120, or just $10 a month, helps feed one person each day for an entire year and enrolls you in the Bed & Bread Club. Donors at the $240 level, or just $20 a month, or above will receive a special gift consisting of a Salvation Army insulated lunch bag, touch screen fingertip gloves and a Christmas music CD.

Unfortunately, Erica’s story of loss and homelessness is just one of thousands. But by joining the Bed & Bread Club today, generous people like you can ensure a hot meal, a bag of groceries, or a safe place to stay the night for our neighbors in need.
