An Interfaith Celebration Worshippers Will Give Thanks Sunday

For the Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council, it has truly been a year for which to be thankful.

And much of the credit can go to its president, Buffalo Grove resident Diane Popper.

On Sunday, the council will hold its 12th annual interfaith Thanksgiving service. The service, which brings together worshippers of all faiths in the area, will be held at 7 p.m. at Congregation Beth Am, 225 N. McHenry Road, Buffalo Grove.

The event is a celebration of interfaith unity. But it is also a chance to take stock of the council's achievements over the past year, not the least of which has been its successful effort to find housing for a needy family.

The council is composed of 11 Christian and Jewish congregations in the Buffalo Grove, Wheeling and Long Grove area. Its mission is to foster understanding and brotherhood among different faiths through open dialogue. Its goals also include encouraging cooperative efforts aimed at addressing social needs in the area and serving as an ethical and moral voice in the community.

Popper said the event of which the council is most proud is the "Faith, Hope and Housing" program, which was introduced at last year's service.

"Through the overwhelming support of the community, we've been able to mentor and help a family avoid homelessness and get them on the road to success," Popper said.

Popper would not reveal any information about the program's recipient, save that it is a single mother, or the location of her residence. She said the Community Economic Development Association of Cook County helped with screening and support.

Seed money was provided by cash donations at last year's interfaith service.

However, Popper added that there is a continuing need for financial assistance of about $15,000 per year.

Popper added that last year's monetary donations were supplemented by automotive gifts.
