We are extremely excited to announce some new nonprofit organization Zealous Good members. Zealous Good is now moving beyond our pilot program, which initially included four nonprofits: Chicago House, St. Vincent de Paul Center, Anixter Center, and Greenhouse Theater. Our current phase now includes 11 Chicago nonprofits. Meet our two newest NPOs: Friends of the Bessemer Bears and New Moms, Inc.!
Friends of the Bessemer Bears provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and daily living skills for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physically and educationally. The Friends are located in Chicago. The major in-kind items requested for donation are books and periodicals, sports and outdoor activities/equipment, electronics and computers, clothing/toys for kids and babies, and special event donations/services. Here is the Bessemer Bears full Wish List.
New Moms, Inc. equips poverty-striken, unprepared adolescent parents and their children with tools to not only survive, but thrive. New Moms, Inc attempts to break the cycle of poverty among at-risk adolescent parents and their children. This organization is also located in Chicago. The specific wish-list is coming soon, but some donation requests include clothes/toys for babies and children.
