Saint Alphonsus Liguori Parish and School joined on Sunday, July 22, with several other organizations to give back to the community. We sponsored a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the victims of the devastating fire in Prospect Heights. Over a hundred families lost everything! Many organizations helped support this event including the fire/police department, the Lions Club, as well as other churches. Thank you to everyone who came and gave so generously. Thousands of dollars were raised and one hundred percent of the donations are going directly to the fire victims. As well, clothing and other items are pouring in! Saint Alphonsus Liguori is proud and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community.
