About Us

Our Team


Two local Chicagoans had an idea back in 2008 to have a one time fundraising event to help out the local food pantry.  That one time event turned into a monthly program called Pack The Car.  Since it's inception, Pack The Car has collected tons (and we mean in weight) of clothing and personal items as well as raised thousands of dollars for Care For Real (  



PACK THE CAR is a grass roots effort started to offer a more convenient method to donate food and clothing for local community support groups. 

Pack The Car collect non-perishable food, clothing and toiletries the last Saturday of the month with the exception of November and December.  The car is parking at the north east corner of Berwyn and Clark in Chicago across the street from Starbucks.
