Misericordia - Heart of Mercy

Our second meeting this year had three nominations once again.  Our chosen charity was: 

Misericordia offers a community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged. Misericordia offers a continuum of care to meet their diverse needs and aspires for each individual to live as independently as possible in the highest level of community integration feasible.  For more information on this worthy cause click the logo above or HERE


We presented our check for $5900.00 to a thankful group and given a grand tour of the Misericordia campus.  It showed the ever so many facets of this community.  So very much to offer their residents!

Clare Woods Academy

We dropped off our donation to Clare Woods Academy and toured the school. We also learned how our donation will be utilized. If "Milo" (whom we are funding for almost a year!) arrives at Clare Woods before our meeting, a representative may bring him so members can see him.  Our $4,800.00 is making an IMPACT!!

RE:NEW PROJECT

Our first meeting on June 14th brought a donation of $3000 to RE:NEW Project in Glen Ellyn!! We hand-delivered our checks today to a very grateful Susan at RE:NEW.  This organization supports refugee women by teaching them sewing skills.  They now have a storefront that sells purses, bags, wallet and more! We certainly enjoyed shopping!  It is open to the public.
