Outreach Center in Eagle River Welcomes Those In Need
Caritas of Eagle River is an outreach center located at Saint Francis Episcopal Church, dedicated to helping those in need of financial help. Organizer for Caritas, JanonFurlong describes the services they offer.
“Well we help people with small amounts of money.. We have some pretty strict limits. It’s $50 a month and $150 in a year. There are no financial restrictions, no residency requirements. If you need help and we’re able to help you, we’re happy to do that.”
Furlong says the organization is sponsored by several area churches and is supported by donations and fundraisers.
They also have a small food and clothing pantry. Clients are welcome to help themselves to the pantry without yearly restrictions.
Caritas is open Wednesdays from 11am to 2pm at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Eagle River.
The center recently celebrated their first anniversary and is looking for volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Caritas at 715-480-5683
