Thank You for Another Successful Backpack and School Supply Drive!

Every year St. Mark’s supports Holy Family Ministries, a ministry partner of Episcopal Charities and Community Services (ECCS), by purchasing and donating school supplies and backpacks for children going back to school.

Located on the historic Homan Square campus in North Lawndale, Holy Family Ministries offers a 45,000 square foot modern building to prepare children for unlimited success. The school empowers 600 students across four programs combined from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, including after-school and summer enrichment options and a teen leadership program.

Thank you to all who gave! We gathered 37 backpacks and 10 boxes of supplies to well equip the children of Holy Family School for this school year! Well done!
