Catholic Charities center steps up for airport community battered by shutdown

Unlike the nearly dead airport a couple of miles away, St. Margaret’s Center in Lennox is alive with activity on Wednesdays in the time of the coronavirus.

Inside, teenage volunteers and staff are busy filling cardboard Chiquita banana boxes to the top with donated Wonder Bread, fresh fruit, and frozen vegetables. Outside, workers are loading those boxes into family cars, while other volunteers are unloading new donations that will help fill more boxes.

All the while, homeless visitors are stopping by to consult with Catholic Charities caseworkers under a white pop-up tent.
