Mutual aid is mutual.* Everyone has different needs and different abilities at different times - and in different forms! We are an all-volunteer, grassroots group operating in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. The only way we can meet the needs of our community is if we all step up to meet the demand for support.
Some of the needs LSMA works to meet include: picking up, sorting, and delivering food; collecting and redistributing money; and fighting for tenants' rights. Whether you need help, can give help, or both, please fill out the form below and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. (And if you're just here to donate, you can do so through the yellow Donate button above. Thanks!)
Be sure to scroll all the way down to fill out all the necessary information and then click submit at the end.
NOTE: You can request financial assistance through this form. However,
We ask that you only submit one request per month, so please consolidate your requests into one. This helps our volunteers be more effective with their time and also spreads out the LSMA support we can offer.
We are currently only able to grant up to $200 in assistance. Individual volunteers may be able to raise funds for larger requests, but this is not guaranteed.
