Care for Creation - Clothing, Textile and Shoe Drive - Sunday, April 22nd (Earth Day)
We will be hosting a clothing and shoe drive on April 22nd to care for our Earth. On April 22nd we need volunteers to go out and pick up bags of clothing/shoes that are left on porches. Anyone wanting to drop off items themselves can do so by placing them into the collection bins that will be dropped off on the property by the school parking lot. This clothing drive is also a fundraiser for our youth group as all donations going to UsAgain pay us for our donations. Contact Elise Dubravec at 815-933-8285 ext. 135 for more information, or click here for more info.
