Ethan S, a member of Boy Scout Troop 4690 and an alumnus of St. Celestine School is currently working on his Eagle Scout project, a “Thank You Video and Activity Packets for Veterans.” He will be leading a group of volunteers in creating and producing a video message to local veterans thanking them for their service. In addition, he will also lead a group of volunteers in collecting supplies and creating individual “fun” activity packets for the veterans of the Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital, near Maywood.

Items needed for activity packets (100 of each item):

  • Jigsaw puzzles
  • Activity books (word search, sudoku, crossword puzzle)
  • Books (fiction and non–fiction)
  • Journals
  • Pens

Due to COVID restrictions, all items must be brand new. Monetary donations / gift cards are also acceptable (and tax deductible).

Donations will be collected at St. Mother Theodore Guerin / St. Celestine Church on Sunday, May 22 after the 11 AM Mass. Donations can also be dropped off at 3049 North Normandy Avenue, Chicago, IL 60634.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance,
