Our second annual Caritas Day on July 31, 2018 was an incredible experience of giving and celebration in honor of our 71st anniversary as a social service agency in Southern Illinois! Thank you SO much to everyone who shared the day with us in person and in spirit! We are so blessed and grateful for all of your support! Scroll down for a complete report.
- It’s not too late to contribute with an online gift.
- We had a super crowd at the Ribbon Cutting for our newest program, Fontebella Maternity Home. Thanks to all who attended! See photos here.
- The Caritas Day Calendar Challenge was a huge success: we collected thousands of dollars worth of donated items in order to stock the shelves of our Resource Center for clients in need. Thanks to all who participated in this way! The grand prize winner was Timothy Freeman from Lebanon, Illinois! Watch the drawing here.
- There were also 20 volunteer projects happening at several locations for Caritas Day! Thanks to ALL our volunteers for your gifts of time, skills and energy!
