Done in a Day

Our Done in a Day committee organizes service projects throughout the year targeted at helping women and children in the community in either just one day or by addressing a short term need.  This allows members to provide meaningful services in an impactful way.  Some of the projects slated for 2019-20 are:

 
Make a Difference Day: In collaboration with the Volunteer Center, we will be collecting donated items to distribute throughout the community to those in need.
 
Bernie’s Book Bank: We will be sorting and bagging books at Bernie’s Book Bank in Lake Bluff to help increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland.

These purses will be donated to local women’s shelters to assist those who are victims of domestic violence and others in need.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact us.  You can drop off purses or new, unopened toiletries to our office or contact us for pick up.  Both full size and travel size are needed.  Below are some of the toiletry items we are looking for:
