Pillars Adult & Family Shelter

Representative: Shelley Nulton

“Lent” Your Way Day Social to benefit Pillars, Inc.

Sunday, March 17th 11 am – 3 pm

St. John Nepomucene 411 Vandenbroek St. Little Chute, WI 54140


More than shelter – Come and learn!

We are raising awareness for Pillars, Inc. in the Fellowship Hall after Mass. Pillars associates and volunteers will be present to talk with you. Donations come in the form of Time, Talent & Treasures. Come learn about different programs offered, find resources or maybe you know someone who can use some help. It does not always take money to make a difference in someone’s life. Learn about different ways to volunteer time. Somethings may seem small to you but can mean the world to another.

Donations will be collected on site for non-perishable food items, wish list items and goodwill offerings.

In addition, we will be selling hot dogs, pizza and having a bake sale. To give you an opportunity to learn more, we will be entertaining kids. We will have balloon animals, scavenger hunt, word puzzles, coloring and more. Bring them to the Msgr. Jim room so they can join the fun.

For further information or if you have any questions, please contact Mary at

Pillars’ Mission - From homelessness to coming home, Pillars provides shelter, support, and solutions to address the housing needs in our community.

In late 2018 the Fox Valley Warming Shelter, Homeless Connections and the Housing Partnership of the Fox Cities merged into a new organization that will be known as Pillars. Pillars Adult & Family Shelter provides a safe temporary shelter and guidance for adults and families in the Fox Valley. Approximately 75 people are sheltered each day. In addition to financial support, First Congregational has stayed actively involved in Pillars, with members of the congregation volunteering in the yearly “point of time” count, serving meals, working the front desk and performing various other miscellaneous services. The largest activity has been participation in the E2F (Empty to Full) Pans program. Since is its founding in 2011, First Congregational has provided approximately 1260 pans of food.
