Salesian Old Boys’ Grant

Jerry Stecker, OFS proposed our fraternity put together kits to be give to homeless families as they are placed in new housing. The kits can be found on the Franciscan Outreach website in Chicago. The Salesian group voted our fraternity the grant.

Our fraternity will be charged with purchasing the items for these kits and getting them to the Marquart Center in Chicago. This is a wonderful opportunity for our fraternity to work together on a project directly benefiting homeless families in our Chicago area. We will be joined by the Palatine Fraternity who will assist in any way they can.

Direct any questions to Jerry Stecker.
