Every year, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls calls on caring people to help us provide a safe, supportive home for abused and neglected kids in Chicago.
During the month of March, more than a thousand volunteers hit the streets of Chicago area St. Patrick’s Day parades and events to help us collect donations that support our life-saving work with abused and at-risk children.
Many view volunteering for Mercy Home’s March for Kids campaign as a meaningful alternative or addition to their St. Patrick’s Day traditions. Others get involved as part of individual or group Lenten service projects. And all want to play a part in making a difference in the lives of children.
The campaign also includes a number of fun, Irish events all over town!
But as much fun as March for Kids is for volunteers and friends, it has a serious message–to support abused kids.
That’s why, during March for Kids, we ask everyone to consider making a donation that helps us provide a safe home for kids year round. In fact, Mercy Home depends on programs like March for Kids to raise 99.9% of the resources we need to save young lives and help build healthy futures.
