Mercy Homes March for Kids

News Comments Off on Mercy Homes March for Kids

Volunteers will again be out in force on Chicago-area street corners, St. Patrick’s Day parades, and other events throughout the month of March, collecting donations to help Mercy Home for Boys & Girls give at-risk children a safe place to live, therapy to heal from the trauma of abuse and neglect, and tools like education and job skills to help them build independence.  Mary’s Millennium Council joins other Knights of Columbus councils in supporting this cause throughout the month.

Mercy Home for Boys & Girls’ March for Kids campaign is the public’s chance to help children break the cycle of abuse and neglect.

The campaign will feature teams of street volunteers collecting donations to Mercy Home and handing out Mercy Home Shamrocks as a way of saying ‘thank you.’ Donations like those generated by its March for Kids effort supply Mercy Home with 100% of the funds it needs to care for children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Clad in their signature green aprons, Mercy Home March for Kids volunteers will collect donations after masses the weekend of March 14-15th.  Donations can also be made at St. John’s Fish Frys throughout Lent.   Thank you in advance for your support of Mercy Homes.  For more information about their mission, see their website  (mercyhome.org).
