Mother’s Day in North Lawndale – A Huge Success!
Many heartfelt thanks to the Old St. Pat’s Community for making Mother’s Day special for the children and their moms of St. Agatha’s in North Lawndale. Connections hosted a toiletry drive where we collected a ton of items for this event. Volunteers went to St. Agatha’s where we set up a “retail store” and had “personal shoppers” work with the kids to find the perfect gift for their moms.
The kids were extremely excited to be able to “shop” for their moms and you could feel the electricity and anticipation in the room. Thanks again for your generosity to make this project with St. Agatha’s our Sharing Parish Partner happen. Beth Marek, Director of Outreach
