The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid for the 2021-22 school year will both be available on October 1, 2020.

Blood DriveTo help remedy Chicago's dire blood shortage caused by COVID-19, State Senator Mattie Hunter and Apostolic Church of God are partnering to hold a community blood drive this fall. African-American blood donors are particularly needed to help patients battling sickle cell disease. Blood banks have seen donations by African-Americans drop by more than 50% since the COVID-19 outbreak began.

If you are interested in being part of this community solution, please add your name here. Even one donation could save the life of one of our neighbors. If you have already signed up to donate blood, please call (877) 258-4825 or visit and use group code F932 to make an appointment as soon as you can.

Blood Drive Date: Friday, October 2 from 12-5pm in Apostolic Church of God Gym. Hope to see you there!
