Connecting Communities | December 2021
Giving Tuesday was a major success this year for Marillac St. Vincent Family Services. We raised more than $15,000 in support of the Wellness Closets at our Lincoln Park and East Garfield Park locations. Hundreds have turned to us to provide basic daily necessities as retail prices soar and more than 700 individuals have come to the Lincoln Park location since January 2021 for support.
In support of our Giving Tuesday efforts, NBC Channel 5 and CBS Channel 2 covered the Wellness Closets during their news broadcasts on Tuesday, November 30th.
On the 5:00 PM Broadcast, Leann Trotter on NBC Channel 5 interviewed Tramaine Martin, Community Outreach Manager and Peter Beale-DelVecchio, CEO.
On the 10:00 PM Broadcast, Marie Saavedra on CBS Channel 2 interviewed Tramaine Martin and Abie, one of our regular clients.
We want to thank all the generous individuals who donated to the Giving Tuesday campaign, and for all the efforts of the Marillac St. Vincent staff and community, especially our Community Outreach Manager Tramaine Martin for making these video segments possible.
It is never too late to support our Wellness Closets and Food Pantry.
