Donate to help fund our Back to School Fairs
Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet is already busy preparing for our 2019 Back to School Fairs. We provide these fairs to ensure that each student who lives in poverty is prepared to learn and succeed when they return to school in the fall. As the new school year approaches, many parents experience anxiety as they make difficult decisions, such as choosing between buying food and school supplies.
We have hosted our Back to School Fairs since 1990 and thousands of children and their families are counting on this support, but we need your help. Each summer, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet coordinates three separate Back to School Fairs to help students and their families in DuPage County; Kankakee and Iroquois Counties; and Will County. We also provide school supplies to those in need in Kendall County. Many of our neighbors rely on these important events for physicals, vision tests, dental screenings, haircuts, school supplies, and other important services.
We depend on generous donations to help fund the Back to School Fairs in our community. Please help to ensure that each child who attends receives what he/she needs for a successful start to the school year.

Thank you for your generosity and remember that thousands of children are counting on you! You and your family are always in our prayers.
