Fourth annual back to school event
Pens, pencils, notebooks, rulers, crayons, backpacks and other back to school essentials were distributed to 65 school children ages 5 to 18 on July 29, 2014.
"The kids were really excited about getting the backpacks," said Barbara Lakomiak, event coordinator and president of District IX. "And with the extra money this year from the St. Vincent de Paul Tools for Success Program and St. John Brebeuf in Niles, we were able to give them everything on their school list."
35 Vincentians, children and teens helped out including client-friend Kathy Velazquez and her six children. They have been helping Barbara out every year. "Whenever Barb calls and needs help with something, we jump for her. My kids know that if it weren't for Barb and St. Vincent de Paul, there are times we wouldn't have a meal," Velazquez said.
Barbara, wanting no recognition for her efforts quietly goes about procuring all of the school supplies from discount vendors and online resources. "I do it for the kids," she says.
Six conference members from St. John Brebeuf in Niles were also on hand to help out including Bob and Joan Czerlanis. "When we were looking for other parishes to twin with, we chose St. Turibius because we were very impressed with their food pantry operations and what Barb does here. The whole district works well together," Bob said.
St. Turibius is located at 5646 South Karlov Avenue in Chicago. To learn more or to donate please call 312.655.7182.
