YMCA RAUNER has kindly also donated school supplies for the families.

If you know of the other families affected please have them contact Cristina at 773-953-9228. We would like to get their sizes as well and let them know we are having a donation drive for them.

We ask that you bring your donations in a box or bag and if you can label them even better.

Thank you so much for being there for these families and for helping Pilsen.
