Sid Feldman Foundation Sid Feldman was a staunch proponent of education. Born and raised in the Chicago Stockyards, Sid was a successful businessman which he attributed, in part, to being open to learning and education. The blessings of his career have been bestowed upon many to enable them access to education which may have been otherwise out of their reach. The Sid Feldman Legacy Fund hopes to continue his belief in education and its accessibility for all. This foundation is able to give an incoming CPS graduate student a scholarship for DePaul. This year FSL Weeks Penny War contributions will be going to help this foundation.

Mother Seton Food Pantry This years Can Castel creations will be donated to the DePaul Food Pantry, Mother Seton Food Pantry. Mother Seton Food Pantry serves on a monthly basis over 230 households, reaching rough 8,250 people per year This food panty also serves DePaul students who qualify for food assistance.
