COVID-19 Matching Fund Campaign for Purses with a Purpose Program Shelters (4/25/20-5/5/20)







The Junior League of Evanston-North Shore is pleased to announce the successful results of our COVID-19 matching fund campaign that ran from April 25 through #Giving Tuesday (May 5th). We collected $2,500 in donations and are matching $2,500 and have decided to donate an additional $2,500, bringing our total funds raised to $7,500. Each of the shelters in our Purses with a Purpose program will receive $1,500, which include: A Safe Place/Lake County Crisis Center, WINGS Program, Inc., Howard Area Community Center, Sarah’s Circle and The Staben House.

Your donations will help these shelters to assist domestic violence victims, provide a home for adults and children, provide family stabilization, provide clinical and social services, and much more at a time when domestic violence calls have doubled during the COVID-19 crisis.

We could not have done this without the generosity of our supporters. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and are proud and humbled by how you helped us to respond together to double the impact! #JLStrong #jlens #juniorleague
