On Wednesday, September 15th, 2021, the HCS Junior Board is partnering with Chipotle for a fundraiser to support HCS Family Services. Join us at the Chipotle at 7173 S Kingery Hwy, Willowbrook from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, show them the above flyer or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to HCS. Thank you for your support!
You can make a difference for those who struggle with hunger in our community. With your support, a parent can put a healthy meal on their family’s table. A student can focus on learning rather than their hunger at school. A senior citizen won’t have to choose between eating and paying medical bills.
To the surprise of many, hunger is an acute issue in our own backyard. Our county has the 2nd largest hungry population in Illinois. One in six northern Illinois children face hunger. Senior hunger is growing quickly.
Do you agree that everyone deserves access to healthy, nutritious foods? Help us get food to those who need it most by making a tax-deductible donation.
Our pantry attendance has grown over 40% in the last six months, so we need your support now more than ever. Your donation will support the 1,000 families from 24 local communities who use our food pantries in Hinsdale and the Anne M. Jeans Elementary School in Willowbrook.
HCS Family Services was founded in 1937 by community leaders to provide the basic necessities of life to those who needed it most. Today, we ask you to support our founders’ vision with a donation to our local hunger relief work.
Together, we can do mighty things in our community. With your gift, you’ll join our many community organizations, grocery food rescue partners and 400 volunteers who work so hard to end local hunger and strengthen our community.
We are so thankful for all the wonderful articles the Hinsdalean keeps writing about our important work at HCS Family Services.
The latest article spotlights one of our largest fundraising events of the year “Blue, Brews and Barbeque” which happens Sunday, November 3, 2019 from 4-7pm.
Here’s an excerpt from their article:
Blues, Brews & Barbecue will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, at The Community House in Hinsdale. Thanks to the generosity of 46 community sponsors, all money raised will go directly toward stocking the shelves of the pantries in the busy months to come.
Building on the success of last year’s sold-out event, the second annual Blues, Brews & Barbecue fundraiser for HCS Family Services is set for Sunday, Nov. 3, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Community House in Hinsdale.
The event promises fun for the whole family and will feature barbecue from Sweet Baby Rays, brews from Motor Row Brewery, and the music of The Original Chicago Blues All-Stars.
Sponsorships are available to help defray the cost of the event so more of the proceeds go to feeding our hungry neighbors.

Generous sponsors have underwritten all event costs, so 100% of your ticket price directly funds our two food pantries.
Board member with brewery, band connections helps create new HCS fundraiser
Hinsdale’s Bob Lassandrello enjoys a good beer — especially if it’s served up at Motor Row Brewery in Chicago.
He spent his adult life trading at the Mercantile Exchange before deciding to build the brewery.
“It was a really good time for me to transition out,” Lassandrello said. “My son is a brewer and we had some partners who were interested in putting this together, so we did.”
