W. Humboldt Park is struggling to recover from COVID-19, extensive looting, and the long standing, entrenched difficulties that surround us all the time. I'm running the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to bring hope to W. Humboldt Park through our continued and expanding food outreach as well as our new outreach center.
Now more than ever W. Humboldt Park needs the hope of Jesus. Help us continue to bring hope to our neighborhood!
More in a few months....
Team Mission of Our Lady of the Angels will be fundraising through the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Shamrock Shuffle!
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to the W. Humboldt Park, Chicago- one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the US. The Mission feeds about 2000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope.

(1) Continue to respond to the complicated needs created by COVID-19 and the social unrest of summer 2020
-The Mission's neighborhood was hard hit by COVID-19, the economic effects of COVID-19, and many businesses were looted and burned in summer 2020. We will continue to respond with additional material and social service support.
(2) Help the Mission finish the renovations on its new outreach center to the neighborhood
-The new outreach center will provide the very needed space for the Mission's donation storage/ distribution, a handicapped accessible kitchen/ dining room, meeting space for neighborhood and retreat groups, and a 45+ bedroom retreat center for volunteers and retreat guests. See more HERE about the renovation project!
