Together We Cope assistance helps people get back on their feet after a financial setback.

The south suburban community is made stronger by Together We Cope assisting families in crisis.

Food pantry donations and food drives

The pantry always needs food donations, personal care products, and baby supplies. Drives are also important. Ask your church, school, business or organization to host a food drive, a diaper drive or a personal care products drive. We will provide collection bins in advance and pick them up when you’re done.

Bring food donations to the back door of Together We Cope, at 17010 Oak Park Ave in Tinley Park.

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays (our late day) between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.
  • Call Tony Roman at 708-633-5040, ext. 7228 for more food pantry information.
