Kruse Crew's

Over the last several years, St. Patricia Parish has supported over 100 units and 60 chaplains with items for their comfort and religious items for their spiritual needs.  The group meets once a month on every third Tuesday at the Hickory Hills Community Center where boxes are packed with items for the troops in combat areas.  We hold a donation drive Memorial Day Weekend, sign Christmas Cards and collect baked goods during the holidays, and collect various items throughout the year.  Our goal is to make sure our men and women in uniform who are in harms way know that the people back home support them.
