Thanks to Lyons Township High School for the food donation this week! On behalf of the households we serve, THANK YOU and may your Christmas be filled with joy and peace!
Food baskets are due this weekend! On Sunday we will be distributing the food baskets, along with Christmas gifts, to our local recipients. Please remember, each tag represents a real family. When you took a tag from the tree, you made a commitment to that person, and to returning your item(s) on time.
RED TAGS (food baskets): Bring your Food Baskets to Morrissey Hall on Sunday, December 17th from 7:30 AM-11:00 AM.
Please pull up on STONE AVE. and a volunteer will help unload your donation.
We ask that you securely attach the food basket tag to your package. If your food is in more than one container, if possible please mark the containers 1 of 2, 2 of 2, etc. This will be a big help in our organization process.
A HUGE thank you to our volunteers last weekend! We had about 100 different volunteers move and organize (literally) thousands of gifts donated by generous St. Cletus families! Thank you for your donations!
This year we again had a special donation of a moving truck from Del’s Moving & Storage. Parishioner Randy Balla and his son-in-law helped us carefully transport gifts down to our sharing parish St. Agatha’s to distribute to 200 individuals. Thank you!!! (http://www.delsmovers.com)
Thank you for your continuing generosity to the less fortunate in our community.
