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
THE ROBERTI COMMUNITY HOUSE TO RECEIVE OUR FEBRUARY 7th DONATION
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.
With this donation, our total awards to date exceeds $200,000!
The other two worthwhile causes presented: Mother's Trust by Leslye Winslow, and Willow House by Darlene Bikshorn.
"THE TRIKE PROJECT" AWARDED $13,100
The Trike Project, presented by member Cheryl Lardner, was our awarded charity for November 2016. Their mission is to help children with special needs obtain adapted tricycles for therapeutic and recreational use. This is a very small charity so our dollars will make a big difference. Their slogan is "Mobility is Freedom."
The Trike Project is at Laremont School in Gages Lake, which is part of SEDOL (Special Education Department of Lake County). Laremont School provides services for students with severe/profound and multiple disabilities. Started by two staff at the school to honor a student who passed away, The Trike Project provides life enhancing mobility to students and is very inspirational. Check out their website for more details: www.thetrikeproject.com
