Misericordia says thanks for donations

Success - Article sent! close

On April 26 and 27 thousands of volunteers were out on the streets and in front of stores in Chicago and the suburbs handing out Jelly Belly jelly beans in exchange for donations to Misericordia Home.

Misericordia is a residential facility for nearly 600 children and adults with developmental disabilities, and Candy Days is one of our biggest fundraising efforts. The proceeds go directly into programs designed to help the residents reach their full potential and lead lives of dignity.

We would especially like to thank the residents of Arlington Heights and Rolling Meadows and the surrounding area for contributing so generously to this cause. In addition, we would like to thank our wonderful volunteers, whose commitment of time shows that they believe in the children and adults we serve. We could not have a successful Candy Days without you and we hope you know how grateful we are.

See you next year!
