PLEASE HELP US RESTOCK THE EXODUS WELCOME PACK CLOSET
With the donations from St. Mary's Exodus Welcome Pack Closet, we have been able to supply and deliver many Welcome Packs this year. We plan to maintain the closet as a resource to Exodus and the refugees they welcome to the Chicago area. This means it needs to be well stocked to build a pack at any time. Our collection is starting to run thin, so we've created a wish list of items in need.
