2021 MLK Day of Service Success

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 400 produce and hygiene bags, serving 2,318 people, were distributed on Monday to Joliet Township High School families. The project was a multi-agency effort involving volunteers and donations from the Visitation and Aid Society of Joliet (produce grant sponsorship), BAG Lady Outreach (hygiene items), Zonta Club of the Joliet Area (bags & hygiene grant), Catholic Charities Diocese of Joliet (volunteer assistance), Habitat for Humanity (produce delivery), JTHS Food Service and Joliet Police Department ( braving the cold to do

food distribution and traffic control) and Sam’s Club (hand sanitizer).

It was great coming together to serve our community!
