Help Support the Carmelite Home

Help us Support the Carmelite Home!

For over 110 years, the Carmelite Home located in East Chicago, IN has remained committed to providing a healthy living and treatment environment for children who’ve been separated from their families. At Carmelite Home, children receive housing, food, loving care and are able to participate in a number of programs designed for their growth and development. This year, Advance Financial is proud to sponsor a fundraiser to help support Carmelite Home in their mission. From March 1 to April 30, you can purchase a stuffed Moe Monkey™ for $10, a cut-out for $1 or make a monetary donation of any amount.

We will also be accepting donated items from the Carmelite Home's wishlist. These items include new and unopened:

  • Unscented Body Wash
  • Unscented Shampoo, Conditioner
  • Latex Powder Free Gloves- Large Size
  • Bottles of Hand Sanitizer
  • Sanitizing Wipes
  • Lysol Spray
  • Lysol Sanitizing Wipes
  • Tide Laundry Detergent

100% of the proceeds will go to the Carmelite Home. Collection boxes are at each AFFCU office.
