Local Stories

Class of 2024 Senior Spotlight: Jack Neiman

Jack Neiman, a graduating senior from St. Ignatius High School, raised over $25,000 and led monthly packing events for Blessings in a Backpack, supporting children in the Cabrini Row homes.

The Race to Feed Chicago Feeds Thousands

More than 140 Blessings friends and supporters gathered at Protiviti offices in Chicago on April 18 for the Race to Feed Chicago, resulting in the packing and delivery of 2,000 bags of food to local school children and raising nearly $11,000 to support further efforts against childhood hunger.


We would like to give many thanks to our Chicago Chapter Lead Partners listed below, without which this program would not be possible.
