SXU Supports Misericordia Candy Days: a great success!


More than 100 Saint Xavier University (SXU) alumni, students, faculty and staff volunteered to help raise almost $7,000 in support of Misericordia Heart of Mercy's Candy Days fundraising event on April 25.

In just ten hours, the SXU Service Through Action Team (S.T.A.T.) collected $6,951.93 from motorists at the intersection of 95th and Cicero Ave. in Oak Lawn. All proceeds will support Misericordia Heart of Mercy.

Several groups from SXU made great efforts to participate this year, including: local SXU alumni; the SXU football team; School of Nursing students, staff and faculty; Communication Sciences and Disorders students; Department of Public Safety staff and student workers; and University Ministry.

Misericordia currently supports 600 children and adults with mild to profound developmental disabilities from all racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. Their exceptional programs include residential placement and day-to-day support, employment opportunities, physical and speech therapy, social and recreational outings, health and fitness activities, and opportunities for spiritual growth. Visit the Misericordia website for more information about the organization.
