Change The World Project

Meet Thora Kastner-Lang a student at Kettle Moraine High School in Wisconsin. For her school project, she collected donations of school supplies for the children in Guatemala from two elementary schools. She distributed flyers to all the students and picked up the donations as part of a "change the world project" for her sociology class. She went on a trip with HIM to Guatemala a few years ago and with this project she hopes to continue this experience for years to come. She said "It was truly an experience of a lifetime." Thanks, Thora. We can already see the smiles on the students faces when they receive these school supplies.
Thank You To Our Resale Shoppe Volunteers

On January 18, we were so excited to welcome students and faculty from the University of Illinois at Chicago to our Resale Shoppe in Munster. They volunteered helping us sort, organize and pack items within our store and warehouse. Thanks for all your hard work.

We also welcomed members from Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Burbank, IL who came out on January 31 along with those from Calvary Church from Orland Park, IL who joined us on February 20. We are so grateful that you came to help us sort through donated items, organize the store and go through miscellaneous items to be sent to Guatemala. A big thank you to all who came out and so willingly gave of your time and talents.
