Aunt Mary’s Storybook Project

St. Raphael hosts an annual fundraiser supporting Aunt Mary’s Storybook. This nonprofit connects incarcerated parents in sixteen correctional facilities across Illinois with their children. Through the program, parents choose a book and recording themselves reading it for their children. The organization then sends the book and recording to the child offering a sense of connectedness to their parent.
