Book bag Drive

This week 30 new book bags full of paper, notebooks, pencils and other grade-specific items started school on the shoulders of a child of the Aliveness Project. Once again MCC Illiana geared up children across the region for a successful 2023-2024 school year. Thanks to all those who added a child to their shopping list and ventured into the back-to-school sales. The book bags were blessed at our service on Sunday and on Sunday afternoon they were off to the social workers to be given to the children. The Aliveness Project serves family in Northwest Indiana dealing with HIV/AIDS.
