Residents Giving Back

Cradles_to_Crayons

 

 Misericordia's Community Access Group "Engage Chicago" has started volunteering at an organization called Cradles to Crayons Chicago, a nonprofit agency that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive at home, at school and at play.

Materials are donated to the facility called the Giving Factory, and there the volunteers help clean, sort, and pack the items as needed.  Misericordia residents worked on filling backpacks to be sent off to students.  The residents will be volunteering at Cradles to Crayons one to two times a month moving forward.
