What is Mercy Home’s March for Kids?

No city celebrates St. Patrick’s Day quite like Chicago. Home to some of the biggest parades anywhere and a river that runs emerald green, the Irish spirit is on brilliant display all over town during the month of March.

It’s also a special time when Chicagoans, who are as passionate as we are about ensuring our city’s future, join Mercy Home in our March for Kids.

During Mercy Home’s March for Kids campaign, we ask caring Chicagoans to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. Your donations make it possible for them to find a safe and loving home. You bring them healing from the traumas of their pasts. And you change the direction of their futures by giving them a good education and job skills.

March for Kids

The public can join our March for Kids when they see our volunteers at Chicago-area St. Patrick’s Day parades and events. But you can join us right now by making a donation.

And here’s another reason there’s no better time to give than right now—for the entire month of March, every donation you make to Mercy Home’s March for Kids will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous donor! So your gift today will go twice as far in helping our boys and girls build their futures.

How to Join our March for Kids

You can join our march in one of three ways:

1. Donate online to support our kids.

2. Donate to volunteers wearing our green vests when you see them throughout the month of March.

3. Volunteer at parades, events, at your office, and on tag days throughout the month of March to collect donations for Mercy Home.
