Welcome to Gandhi Samaj of Chicago

The mission of Gandhi Samaj of Chicago is to help keep inherited culture thriving while assimilating into diverse society for the current generation and beyond.

About GSC

Gandhi Samaj of Chicago (GSC) was founded in 1984 in Chicago, IL, USA by  immigrants from South Gujarat part of India. GSC is a community of over 600 members living in Chicagoland and surrounding  cities. Our community members are from South Gujarat district of India (Surat, Mandvi, Navsari, Bilimora, Gandevi, Chikhli, Amalsad, Valsad and Vapi to name a few).

The objectives of GSC are to achieve and promote unity amongst members while helping the community to enhance cultural awareness via education, programs and through celebration of our festivals such as Diwali and Navratri.

Food Donation Drive

GSC have partnered with local food pantry to collect any non-expired dry food items or consumables that can be donated to a charitable organization. Some of the items you can donate are canned food, cereal, baby food, rice, oatmeal, etc.We will have a Food Donation Box near the Food area for collection.

Community Service Day
Back on August 14th, we partnered with Shree Jalaram Mandir in Hoffman Estates for our third annual Community Service Day event.

Since a number of our members attend this mandir, this was a great way to help out and volunteer during the Shrimad Bhagvat Katha. A number of our Samaj members volunteered during the event. This was a rare opportunity to help the Mandir and many in our Samaj were delighted to take this opportunity. We spent our time helping serve lunch to the hundreds of people who attended the event.

As we did last year, we had another year of good participation from our GSC volunteers, and I’d like to thank them for their help and support for making this event a great success!

Special thanks to Jayshreeben Thakkar for reaching out to us on behalf of the Mandir with this opportunity and helping us coordinate the event.

It’s amazing the memories we can help create with a few hours of our time. Given the success of this event, we will be planning another community service event next year for our members and help our community!
