Youth Fundraiser

Youth Fundraiser Banner with Text

Area youth will be collecting donations and needed items to help three of our Homeless Service providers, which have been decimated during the last year in which social service organizations received no state funding. They will be collecting this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (July 21-23) at the Murphysboro and Marion Wal-Marts. Any youth who would like to help are welcome to let us know at Stop by for as long or as little as you can!

Monetary donations will benefit the key provider of low-income housing in the region, the Southern Illinois Coalition for the Homeless. Donation of items will go to the Women’s Center and Good Samaritan Ministries, and toward making care packages for those in need. You can drop off items Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the stores. We will also be collecting items through August 7, and pick up is available by contacting

We are very grateful for our youth who care for the well-being of others, and we hope that everyone can help in some way. Thank you!
