EVENT DATE: Nov 10, 2017

THE STORY:

As we celebrate one of the happiest times of our lives, we want to take the opportunity to give back to our community. We're encouraging our wedding guests to make a donation to our CrowdRise campaign which supports a few local charities that are important to us.

Society of St. Vincent DePaul

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and providing others with the opportunity to serve. More than 800,000 community residents in Cook and Lake counties are served each year; people who wouldn't have had anywhere else to turn to for help without the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Why is it important to us? We both attended DePaul University in Chicago and were impacted by the teachings of St. Vincent DePaul who dedicated himself to serving the poor. As students of DePaul, we were taught the Vincentian Way - a path of life rooted in community and service.

Bernie's Book Bank

Bernie’s Book Bank collects, processes and distributes quality new and gently used children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children. In 2017, Bernie's Book Bank will be on target to distribute 4 million books annually to over 333,000 at-risk in Chicagoland.

Why is it important to us? Both of Megan's parents have been very invovled in and passionate about Bernie's Book Bank. If you know the Urreas, you know that books are a pillar of the family! Through benefits and fundraisers, they have supported the book bank to help bring books to children.

Crisis Center for South Suburbia

CCSS envisions a community where domestic violence is not tolerated; where all people are safe. The Crisis Center works toward that vision through direct services to victims, through advocacy with systems in the community, by raising awareness through education and by holding abusers accountable. Their services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year and free of charge.

Why is it important to us? Kevin's mom has worked with the Crisis Center for a few years as a volunteer and now an employee of its resale shop. The proceeds of the store go back to the Crisis Center to continue supporting people in need. We've all been inspired by her involvement and passion in giving back!
