Catholic Charities Backpack Program
Through the generosity of many donors, Catholic Charities is able to provide several backpacks filled with notebooks, pencils, pens, rulers, and much more to children in need around the diocese each summer before school. In 2020 over 375 bags have been distributed to children in LaSalle, the Quad Cities, Normal, Champaign, Galesburg, DePue, Rantoul, Canton and Peoria. Contact Sr. Michelle for additional information.
