Dear St. Petronille Family,
First of all, let me begin with saying THANK YOU! So many of you answered the call to help our St. Petronlle families and we were able to get needed supplies to the families this weekend. Thank you thank you thank you!!
However, as you are aware, our work doesn't stop there. As time moves forward and lives are changed by our Shelter in Place order, famiies will continue to be in need. Our work cannot stop, we will continue to support our St. Petronille Families as long as they need. Can you continue to help us?
The process will be changed slightly as our directives from the Archdiocese of Joliet have lead to changes at the church. With the church now being locked during the day, donations will continue to be accepted but will be accepted at parishioners Kevin and Cathy Douglass's home at 271 Forest Ave, Glen Ellyn. Bins will be located in their driveway and donations can be placed there during the week. This SUG will be updated each Sunday with needed items for the new week. You can also continue to donate gift cards and monetary donations by dropping them off in the locked mailbox outside of the parish office.
Just a reminder, the process to donate is as follows:
Step 1 - look through the SUG and fill out the items you are wiling to share from your own home or if needed purchase.
Step 2 - items you have signed up for can be brought to the home of Kevin and Cathy Douglass at 271 Forest Ave, Glen Ellyn during the week and placed in bins in their driveway. Bags of supplies will be distributed on Saturday mornings to families directly.
Step 3 - For gift cards, please drop those in the locked mailbox in front of the parish office.
Step 4 - continue to check the SUG weekly (if you can), as we will be adding to the list as needs in the community are identified to the parish.
Optional step -If you'd like to make a monetary donation to this collection please contact me directly.
Also to note, if you or someone you know is in need, please contact the parish office or Tanya Singh directly at [email protected] and we will try to help you as well.
That's it, we have tried to keep this as simple as possible but please know that you will be making a signficant difference in the lives of our fellow parishioners.
Please email Tanya Singh with any questions at [email protected]
