NCC Cares about the Homeless

By: Karli Saner, Assistant Director of Ministry & Service


At the core of North Central College is a call to care—to care for our classmates, professors, staff members, and sports teams; to care for our environment; to care for our words in dialogue with each other; and to care for our neighbors in acts of service and kindness.

Cardinals in Action (CIA)—North Central’s student-led service group—is collecting gift cards, health/hygiene products, winter clothing items, non-perishable food items, and more this holiday season in their initiative #NCCares. In partnership with North Central’s MLK Service Project, CIA will be distributing these care packages to the homeless in Chicago, January 21st. So mark your calendars! Train tickets will be provided.

We hope you can join us in donating an item or two and/or travel with the NCC community to the city to sit with the homeless, bless them, and hear more of their stories.

Items can be donated in residence halls or the Office of Ministry and Service through January 9th.

Questions? E-mail CIA President, Debra Jensen ( or Assistant Director of Ministry and Service, Karli Saner (
