Give Thanks Bloomington IL

Give Thanks Bloomington ILOn Thanksgiving Day in 1917, Billy Shelper, the founder of Home Sweet Home Ministries, opened our doors for the first time with a simple message: to provide hope for the homeless, hungry, and hurting. For 98 years, Home Sweet Home Ministries has continued sharing that message.


Give Thanks in Bloomington IL is the initiative of Home Sweet Home Ministries that is built on a simple premise: we all have things for which we are thankful for, and this Thanksgiving, we have a way of showing our thanks by helping those in need by supporting the efforts of Home Sweet Home Ministries.

Give Back to the Community with Give Thanks Meals

Give thanks in Bloomington IL by giving back. To help us do so, the Give Thanks program involves a partnership between Home Sweet Home Ministries and Midwest Food Bank, a large organization aiming to alleviate hunger and poverty by gathering and distributing food donations to non-profit organizations such as Home Sweet Home Ministries. With food donations from our partner, we are able to feed thousands of people who cannot have a decent meal during Thanksgiving. Give thanks is a program in Bloomington IL that has helped many homeless people enjoy a hot Thanksgiving meal.


How to Support Our Cause and Get Involved

Home Sweet Home Ministries Turkey Cards are sold at both the Bloomington and Lincoln Mission Mart stores during Thanksgiving. Each turkey card sold will help provide a hot Thanksgiving meal for someone who is hungry. Home Sweet Home Ministries partners with Open Arms Christian Fellowship in Lincoln for this program, and the money raised through card sales in Lincoln remains in that community to support those in need there.

In any way, whether through donations, volunteering, or support for our turkey cards, you can give thanks in Bloomington IL with Home Sweet Home Ministries.
