La Salle Station employees stand with with Tammy Reyes, manager of Under His Wings, amidst all the supplies they donated to the Women’s Center. The items will help mothers and their children.

Under His Wings expresses its thanks to the Exelon’s La Salle Station employees for their generous support of the ministry. 

When La Salle Station had its holiday party, the employees were asked to bring a baby item, along with their ticket, in order to gain entry into the festivities. 

The response was overwhelming, and produced a mountain of needed supplies that will help the many moms that come to the Women’s Center for assistance. 

The employees brought boxes of diapers, wipes, baby wash, lotion, diaper ointment, formula, blankets, and socks. The shelves were restocked with these items and will benefit dozens and dozens of moms for quite a while.

Under His Wings has been in existence for 28 years and is a non-denominational Christian organization that assists pregnant women and moms with babies and toddlers.

The Women’s Center, 802 Liberty St., Morris, is open from 10 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday. For further information, call (815) 942-4682.

In order to support the Women’s Centers, Under His Wings has a resale shop, which is run entirely by volunteers.  It accepts donations of gently used items, such as furniture, antiques, linens, jewelry, kitchen essentials, pictures and seasonal decorations.

The resale shop, also located at 802 Liberty Street in Morris, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, please call (815) 941-2831.

Under His Wings is truly grateful for the way in which the La Salle Station employees showed their generosity.

Even though they have extremely busy schedules, they found the time to identify needs in the community and then took action to help.
