Our Future Home: 3945 N. Sheridan

New Home for Lakeview Pantry

Dear Friends,

Thank you to all that have donated so generously to Lakeview Pantry’s Capital Campaign. Through your gifts, our new home at 3945 North Sheridan is now a reality.

I invite you to create your legacy and become a special part of Lakeview Pantry’s history! Any individual or team that raises $1,000 or more for the Capital Campaign will be recognized by name on our beautiful donor wall located prominently in the new building. The donor wall was revealed to the public during our grand opening celebration in late June. If you are interested in having your name included on the wall, please fill out a pledge form and return it as soon as possible. Pledge forms can be downloaded here.

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the amazing commitment we’ve seen from our Lakeview Pantry staff and volunteers as they’ve taken it upon themselves to create their own Campaign fundraising teams. Many of them have exceeded their $1,000 naming recognition goal!

I’m also extremely grateful for the dedication of the Lakeview Pantry Board, and Capital Campaign Co-Chairs, Dan Laytin and Dean Patenaude – all of whom have shown incredible leadership throughout the entire campaign process. They continue to be top donors themselves and have been integral in the promotion of the campaign.

We have made significant progress in the Campaign thus far. We are only $298,000 away from reaching our $3.5 million goal.

Help us take the final step in our journey! By donating to the Capital Campaign at this juncture you are ensuring we move into the new building debt-free and most importantly, you are securing Lakeview Pantry’s position in the community as a stable source of food and social programming for those less fortunate.

If you have not already made a contribution to our Capital Campaign, would you please consider making a one-time gift that is over and above the contribution you already make to the Pantry? Remember, any donation of $1,000 or more will be recognized on a very special donor wall inside the new building. 

See the links on this page to make a donation or join a fundraising team. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact me at 773-525-1777.

Thank you for your consideration,
