Pandemic Assistance Update – January 2021


Personal Protective Equipment
The Mount St. Joseph Association continues to procure large quantities of personal protective equipment. January purchases included: disposable masks and gloves, disinfecting wipes and disinfectant spray.

Weekly Meals
A special catered meal is highly anticipated each weekend. Tracey DiFalco and Sr. Charleen have coordinated these meals for the residents, staff and Sisters throughout the pandemic. Many generous family members earmarked their recent donations for this purpose:

January Meal Sponsors:

  • Judy Bruggenthies in honor of Valerie Volz
  • Gerald & Patricia Hanratty and Judy Iverson in honor of Laura Hanratty
  • Dorothy Lind in memory of her husband Norman and her twin sister Doris Pfrenger
  • Jim and Mary Rieck in honor of Megan Rieck
  • Peter and Linda Swanson in honor of Mary Ann Gracious

Pop Purchase and Cookie Donations
The Mount St. Joseph Association recently purchased another three-month supply of pop to accompany the sponsored meals.

Terry Likar, Lindsey Timmins’ aunt, has been donating specialty cookies for several months. Each housemother decides when to serve the sweet treats.

Would your family like to sponsor one of these meals?

Suggested sponsorship donation is $1,000. Another option is to coordinate with other families to sponsor.

Checks (payable to Mount St. Joseph Association) should be sent to Arn Baranchik, 924 Greenfield Court, Mount Prospect, IL 60056. Please earmark your donation as “Weekly Pandemic Meal.”

You may also use the PayPal/credit card option on our website: earmark the donation in the “Attached Notes” section at the top of the page.
