BENEFITING: Old St Patricks Church
ORGANIZER: Old St Patricks Church
Excited to join the Old St. Pat's Crossroads Runners Team for the third year!
Crossroads raises funds for non-profits to assist Chicago's at-risk youth, homeless and unemployed with targeted programs, resources and service initiatives. Organizations include Harmony Hope and Healing, Horizons for Youth and Career Transitions Center.
I love being a member at Old St Pat's and am so proud to be part of a community that has such robust social outreach missions. Part of the reason, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to join this team the first year I joined is their support of The Cara Program www.thecaraprogram.org, an organization that I first came to know in 2010 when their director of development came to speak where I work about the support, life-skills training, and job placement they provide for those who are homeless or battling poverty in Chicago. Since 1991, they’ve placed over 1,800 individuals in permanent, quality jobs. The Cara Program is one of many social service organizations supported by The Crossroads Group.
Please join me in supporting The Crossroads Group and collectively, we can assist our neighbors who desperately need help by running on their behalf and doing our best to respond to their most basic needs.
