Coffee & Conversation – 12/1/18

Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM


C&C fam! Come out to the West Side and embrace the holiday spirit for our last meetup of the year!

Breakthrough Urban Ministries is a beloved organization on the West Side which offers after school programs for young people, an extremely affordable pre-school program, a cafe, a healthcare center, housing for people experiencing homelessness, and other services. We’ll be gathering at their FamilyPlex, a neighborhood community center for East Garfield Park, to see up close and personal what’s going on in this part of the city. We’ll be serving coffee via Breakthrough’s The Bridge Cafe as you connect with talented creatives from all over Chicago. (Note: Longtime West Side resident and C&C’s very own Morgan Lee is on Breakthrough’s young professional board!)

If you’re looking for a way to give back for the holidays, we encourage you to bring gifts to C&C which you’d like to donate to Breakthrough’s Christmas store (you can also buy them off their Amazon wish list). Rather than giving away these gifts directly, community members and homeless guests will later be invited to shop at the Christmas store in order purchase them at a greatly reduced price. This empowers parents, grandparents and caregivers to be part of the gift-giving process, and is a dignifying and practical way for shoppers to provide for loved ones themselves. You can learn more here:
