Mount Carmel students are familiar with Advent Action, when they are tasked with bringing in canned foods and toys to be donated during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Now Mr. John Stimler, Director of Mission and Ministry, is challenging students to participate in three other charity initiatives.
Last week, students were asked to bring in clean socks and t-shirts to be distributed to people who lack homes. These items were distributed among residents of several tent encampments around the city by Mrs. Kristine Kilkenny, who helps manage the MC cafeteria.
This week students may donate coats, gloves, hats, scarves, and boots (sizes infant to adult medium) for distribution during next week’s Sophomore Impact Service experience. The frigid weather of Chicago leaves too many without warmth. All donations will be given to Cradles to Crayons program.
Finally, until the end of the second trimester, everyone is asked to save aluminum tabs from cans, which will support Ronald McDonald House.
Stimler challenges every student and faculty member to respond with charity in order to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
