Our June meeting is usually a social occasion to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments and install the new officers. This year, we celebrated 15 years of accomplishments.
The Auxiliary matched personal donations up to $1,025. Members donated $1,929. Our $2,954 donation will purchase over 11,800 nutritious MannaPackTM meals and helped bring the 2-day March 2023 service project/meal packing event to St. Patrick’s Crane Road Church.
Turn hunger into HOPE
With God’s help and our support, FMSC strives to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world.
Each meal costs less than a quarter to make and more than 90% of total donations goes directly toward feeding kids. FMSC consistently receives the highest awards for integrity and trustworthiness, earning a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 16 consecutive years.
Founded in 2010, Beautiful U Ministries is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, Christian organization passionately serving the needs of at-risk pregnant teens and teen mothers. A safe, secure family environment is an essential part of our process, which is why we operate a “family-style” program where each applicant is placed in either a Beautiful U Satellite-Home or in the Transitional Living Center (TLC).
Beautiful U Ministries works very closely with Lazarus House, Waterleaf Crisis Pregnancy Center in Aurora, local school districts & other welfare agencies. Then, they build solutions for single moms and children:
- Housing: safe, loving, family style intervention
- Opportunity: education, vocational or job skill training, networking, accountability & spiritual shepherding
- Programs: therapy/counseling, life skill & parenting classes, budgeting, nutrition, fitness, and spiritual health
- Education: continuing education, tutoring, life coaches
Providing H.O.P.E. for young women in Kane County.
The Ladies Auxiliary has been supporting Corbella’s life-saving ministry since our inception. Corbella’s director, Jeanna Desideri, wrote “We reach out to these brothers and sisters in Christ, and after offering medical services, education, resources and support, they often say YES to life.” You can help too by visiting their donor website at www.missionariesoflife.org.
Thank you to our supporters that came out April 8th, Holy Saturday morning, with their confidential documents for shredding. Your donations will allow the KOC Ladies Auxiliary to aid community resources that provide services/programs at no charge.
From Megan Lopez, Volunteer Coordinator at Lazarus House:
Wanted to send you a picture of the bookshelves, they worked perfectly! The size is great, the kids can walk right over to it and take the books on top to read. We are so blessed and grateful to you (Kim Haag) and the other members from the Ladies Auxiliary! Thank you for all your help!!
And, we thank Kim, too, for leading this effort.
