Thanksgiving Outreach

Posted: 11/12/2013

As we have for the past several years, Holy Comforter is partnering with the Primo Center for Women and Children on the West Side of Chicago to help provide Thanksgiving feasts and other essentials to the families fighting homelessness and experiencing transition to more stable and settled lives. Please see the attached suggested shopping list of items to purchase and bring to the Church between now and November 22. And if you can help transport the baskets, bags, and turkeys to the Primo Center on Saturday, November 23, please contact Jill Klusendorf 847/251-6120 ext. 111. For those not aware of the significance of the name of the organization, the Rt. Rev. Quintin E. Primo Jr. was the Suffragan (assistant) Bishop of the Diocese of Chicago for many years in the 1970s and 1980s; and the Primo Center is one of the Episcopal Charities of the Diocese. 

Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
