Reverse Advent Calendar

For many, the countdown to Christmas is marked with small daily gifts from an Advent calendar. This year, we invite you to embrace the generous spirit of the holidays and participate in New Moms’ reverse Advent calendar. Rather than receiving a gift each day, give one instead! We are asking our community to collect food for our food pantry every day leading up to December 25th.

It’s easy! Each week, buy the corresponding food items listed on the daily checklist below and at the end of the Advent season, drop your complete collection off at our Transformation Center. The food on the list has been specifically requested by moms who regularly use our food pantry. If you have any questions, you can email our Engagement Specialist, Jessica Britt, at

Thank you for helping keep our food pantry well stocked with items young families love!

DROP-OFF INSTRUCTIONS: New Moms pantry (5317 W Chicago Ave) will be open 9am-5pm on Monday-Friday anytime after January 3rd! Please coordinate your drop off ahead of time with our Engagement Specialist, Jessica Britt.
