DuPage Pads Update

Due to COVID-19, DuPage Pads is utilizing local hotels as interim housing for the homeless. Some local churches in our area have begun “Alex’s Mission”, providing breakfast and dinner daily to our homeless neighbors at the Downers Grove train station. St. Joan of Arc has committed to provide dinner on the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Thank you for your generosity in providing Alex’s Mission meals during September.  Your support helped feed 15 homeless men and women. They also received personal protective equipment and cold weather supplies. In addition, our parish donated $2,000 last month to DuPage Pads to shelter over 20 homeless men, women, and families in local hotels.

Although we have enough volunteers for October 17th, we still need help distributing meals on Saturday, November 21st from 5:15pm – 6:45pm. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Matt Zurek at 331-645-9703 or matthewzurek@msn.com.
