St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Conference held a Spring Tote event on May 14 in which we provided the homeless in the area of the Jefferson Park Terminal tote bags that contain clothing and toiletries that are needed in the spring and summer.
It was a wonderful event with Vincentians connecting with our brothers and sisters who suffer from a lack of housing. In addition, Ron Polanecki of Chicago Shares awarded our conference with a grant of $2,000 to continue our works in the Jefferson Park area.
Food was provided by the CaddyShack Restaurant that is owned by the famous Chicago actor Bill Murray and his brothers. God is good!
We would like to thank Michael Avella and the Murray Bros CaddyShack restaurant for donating delicious sandwiches. Thank you to Andrea DeVince, Toni Coletti, Maria Winter and June Fredlund for dessert. We were also able to provide fruits, cold water and distribute Spring Totes which contained essential items such as t-shirts, underwear and toiletries needed this time of the year.
Thanks to our Vincentians for being there and providing company to our Friends in need: Dave McNaughton, Maria Winter, Mark Stemper, Deacon Greg, Monica Dillon, Len Strauch, Linda Zdebski, Joe and Delia O’Connor, Andrea DeVince.
Most of all thanks to all our benefactors who believe in the work that we do. Thanks to you we are able to make events like these happen.
God certainly blessed us with wonderful weather and wonderful Friends!!
