Last week Reclaim3d received a $2500 gift from the First Midwest Bank Charitable foundation! Pictured is

The money will be used for Ms. Pearl / Good News Day Care to purchase hats, gloves, and socks for 54 kids in the inner city of Chicago, stackable chairs and storage bins for the preschool. Good News Day Care is located in the Roseland community of Chicago and provides free Christ-centered daycare for children so moms can get an education, work, and provide for their families.
Roseland is located on the south side of the city and is one of the roughest neighborhoods in Chicago. Gangs, drugs, prostitution, murders, unemployment, and hopelessness are prevalent. Ms. Pearl Willis, the founder of Good News Day Care, provides a nurturing environment giving encouragement and hope back to the community.
While the moms go to school and/or work, their children are fed and provided with a quality pre-school education. The children learn math, science, social studies, letters and numbers, colors and shapes. There is reading time, nap time, play time, and clean-up time. They also learn about Jesus and his love for them. It’s a full day packed with a lot of energy, hope, and love!
Thank you, First Midwest Bank Charitable Foundation for your generosity!
