For Release: The Joliet Catholic Academy Habitat Club launches “Operation Take Out

Habitat brings people together to build homes, communities and HOPE. The Joliet area restaurant community needs us and HOPE now more than ever. “Operation Takeout” is a coordinated effort with the Joliet Catholic Academy community and local restaurants. The JCA Habitat Club is working to offer  alumni restaurants the opportunity to sell dinners through the JCA community. Orders will be taken through a certain time period and dinners will be picked up at the restaurant. This is an outreach to over 500 families, families that have multiple people, allowing for many dinners to be purchased. 

JCA senior Bryan Baker, president of the JCA Habitat Campus Chapter said “This is one way for us to help out the restaurants because they are being shut down”.

Over 70 students are currently actively involved with the JCA Campus Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, moderated by JCA theology teacher Fr. Nepi Willemsen, O.Carm.

JCA senior and Habitat vice president Jake Chignoli shared “we are telling the community what we are doing at JCA to support these local restaurants. Hopefully sharing how JCA’s Habitat Club is working to help restaurants will inspire more people in our area to coordinate the same efforts in their schools and churches. The restaurants need us now more than ever. We want them to be here when this all goes away.”

Joliet area residents interested in participating can visit www.jca-online.org and the front page news headlines to place their orders through Habitat. Patrons can select and purchase meals from the following area establishments on these dates:

Thursday, November 19; Syl’s Chophouse-Baked Chicken Dinner

Stay tuned for the next participating restaurants and the dinners that will be offered through the JCA Habitat partnership on December 3rd & 4th and December 10th & 11th.

All of us coming together to come up with creative ideas and new initiatives during these uncertain times is what needed most. The Joliet Catholic Academy community knows what it means to step up. Service is at the foundation JCA, it is our time not only to serve but to come up with solutions that give this community a fighting chance. If not you, then who?
