Shamrocks for Kids
At events throughout Chicagoland
March is the Month of Mercy in Chicago. Join us for our annual Shamrocks for Kids campaign, a celebration of all things Irish that raises funds and awareness to benefit kids in crisis.
The campaign features lots of family-friendly, Irish-themed activities and events all over town. There are so many ways anyone can have fun while making a difference for abused, neglected and abandoned children at Mercy Home.
Wear your support. Throughout March, Chicagoans are asked to wear their Mercy Home Shamrocks to show that they support kids in crisis. Shamrocks will be available for donations to Mercy Home and can be acquired from volunteers who will hit the streets at Chicago-area St. Patrick’s Day parades and celebrations
Be a Shamrocks Volunteer. We’re looking for volunteers to help raise funds through our Shamrocks for Kids Tag Days. In addition to collecting donations for Mercy Home Shamrocks at Chicago-area St. Patrick’s Day parades and other celebrations, volunteers can organize Shamrocks fund-raising events at their workplaces, in their neighborhoods, at their schools or churches, or even at their own St. Patrick’s Day gatherings. Anyone interested in becoming a Mercy Home Shamrock volunteer can visit mercyhome.org/tagdays or call Suzanna at (312) 738-7551.
Celebrate the Month O’ Mercy—The party continues at O’Brien’s restaurant in Old Town for its annual Month O’ Mercy celebration, which runs from February 17th through St. Patrick’s Day.
There’s something for everybody during Shamrocks for Kids. Please join us next March and make an investment in our children’s futures.
