WHAT CAN HAPPEN WITH THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE GIVING?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 for a worthy cause. That's impact. And it only takes an hour.
No volunteering, no telemarketing, no event planning, no silent auction donations to solicit. Simply a great way to give back right in our own community. Come join with us.
THIS IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF:
And all you need to do is give $100 and one hour of your time four times a year.
SECOND NATIONAL CONFERENCE
A SAFE PLACE AWARDED OUR COLLECTIVE DONATION MAY 9, 2017
Member Susan Addelson presented "A Safe Place", which was our awarded charity. As the leading advocate for eliminating domestic violence in northern Illinois, A Safe Place provides information and training about domestic violence to students, professionals and the general community.
A Safe Place provides safe housing and supportive counseling options to survivors of domestic violence at no charge. Additional services include abuser intervention groups, and education programs for professionals, students and the community-at-large.
Their goal is to provide education about domestic violence, its causes, and appropriate responses, to encourage a whole-community response to the domestic violence in our midst, breaking the cycle of violence, thus creating safe and healthy communities.
Two other amazing charities were also presented tonight. Cancer Wellness Center by Kate Arnold, and Youth Conservation Corps by Ann Maine.
"ROBERTI HOUSE" AWARDED $13,200
The Roberti Community House, located in a distressed area of Waukegan, is intended to be a gathering place, a safe haven, where neighbors of all ages can come together to develop and share their skills and talents and celebrate their successes. This charity was presented by member Sharon Bertrand. A dedicated and creative group of volunteers facilitate their evolving services. They have a broad array of programs, such as sewing, gardening, after school tutoring, and cooking classes. One of their partners is the food pantry across the street.
