2018 We’ve Got Your Back Backpack Fundraiser Results
Having been founded by 12 teachers in Wheaton 62 years ago, youth education in our community means a lot to us.
This fundraiser has proven that it means a lot to you, too. Thanks to generous donations from Members, Team Members, and sponsors, we raised over $12,000 and were able to purchase 1,000 supply kits that were handed out with backpacks at the Catholic Charities of the Joliet Diocese’s 28th Annual Back to School Fair. Thank you for all of your support!
