OUTREACH ACTIVITIES

All Saints Outreach ministry is important in growing and spreading the Christian word and faith.  Our goal is to reach outside our parish to help people in need.  We focus primarily on the local Bolingbrook community.

 

We have partnered with three local elementary schools to identify specific needs throughout the year.  Deacon Wilson has a tremendous relationship with the schools which allows us to be flexible to react as their needs evolve.

 

 

 

BACKPACKS FULL OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES

09/19

At our church, we know that sometimes kids need a little help. The Outreach committee drops off some backpacks  full of necessary supplies at three local elementary schools.

WEST SUBURBAN COMMUNITY PANTRY

06/16

We hold several food drives during the year to benefit this worthy cause.  They host thousands of meals per year for the hungry in our area.  We also make cash donations thanks to our parishoners.

THE MITTEN TREE & CHRISTMAS REQUESTS

10/18

We provide Christmas gifts to children who have made specific requests. The requests are often for clothing staples like under garments and shirts or pants.  But, we try to spice it up by adding age appropriate Christmas toys also.  Parishoners can donate new hats, gloves and mittens by pinning them to the Mitten tree.

WINTER COAT CAMPAIGN

09/19

The Winter Outerwear Collection campaign provides winter coats for three local elementary schools.

PACKING NECESSARY SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR LOCAL CHILDREN

08/23

At All Saints Church we truly want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Because of this, we go into our community and look for ways to serve! Here we are putting school supplies in backpacks for a local elementary school.


The Youth Group lends its time to help elementary school children in need of yearly school supplies.  The schools provide us with the list for each student.  Our parishoners purchase the supplies and the youth group helps the outreach committee by packing each backpack for the students.
