Bringing Back the Baby Bash

In honor of Mother’s Day, we are bringing back CCW’s Baby Shower to benefit Maryville Crisis Nursery, an emergency childcare shelter for kids from birth to age six.

After all the Masses on the weekend of May 20 and 21, we will be collecting gently used onesies and boys’ and girls’ clothes, sizes 3T to 6T, as well as new items such as diapers, hooded baby towels, bibs and Kleenex.

You can also purchase items from their wishlist at Amazon, so helping is one click away:

Cash donations will also be accepted.

Maryville Crisis Nursery provides a safe, loving environment 24/7 for Chicago area families in crisis with challenges such as domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse or homelessness. This beautiful, bright shelter is located only four miles north of St. Giles on Oak Park Avenue.

In honor of your mother or any nurturing female in your life, please consider making a donation to the Maryville Crisis Nursery.

For further details, contact Clarice Harris at, or at 708-404-5313, or Kate Nikolai at 708-860-3590.
