Nonprofit of the Month: Maot Chitim

HBT Digital would like to warmly welcome Maot Chitim as our March Nonprofit of the Month!

Maot Chitim’s mission is to assist needy members of the Chicagoland community with the High Holidays and other food-related needs so they may observe the holidays as well as their daily life in a traditional and dignified manner. The mission is also to provide a volunteer opportunity to unite all members of the Jewish community.

This organization provides food each holiday to meet the needs of over 16,000 individuals for both Passover and Rosh Hashanah. They do so with the help of over 1,500 volunteers who work to pack and deliver boxes! 

Due to the pandemic, there are a few different ways Maot Chitim will be helping those in need this season.

Maot Chitim will buy and deliver Jewel gift cards to recipients in need instead of delivering groceries. Although this is the case, some recipients may need assistance shopping for groceries. If you or someone you know would like to partake in the grocery shopping for recipients, please contact [email protected].

We are especially excited to recognize this organization because HBT Digital’s social media intern, Abby, has been volunteering there since she was young!

“Growing up, Maot Chitim was one of the few organizations I felt connected to, as I’ve been involved my whole life,” says Abby.

“It truly is a really special and giving organization that I am proud to be a part of.”
