Now that the fall and winter months are not too far off, PADS is looking for donations of warmer clothing for our homeless in McHenry County. Underwear, socks, tops, pants, hats, scarves, gloves and jackets are all needed to stay warm. You may have some of these items in good condition around your house and would be glad to make a donation. $5.00 Gift Cards to McDonalds or Burger King are most welcome and provide food, beverage and shelter for a few hours. See Curt Bjorklund for ways that you can help. PADS also accepts donations of food which is used when our church prepares a meal for the homeless.

The regular schedule for PADS homeless ministry begins in October. Our first night will be October 6 at St. Joseph’s church. It involves more than just a meal so if you’d like to help with food, set up, clean up or chaperoning, please see Curt Bjorklund. We serve the first Thursday of every month October through April.
