What is March for Kids?

Every year, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls calls on caring people from all over to help us stop child abuse and provide a safe, supportive home for kids in Chicago.

During the month of March, more than a thousand volunteers hit the streets of Chicago at 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 stop child abuse.

That’s why, during March for Kids, we ask everyone to sign our pledge to fight child abuse and share with others. We also ask you to consider making a donation today 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.
