The Carol Stream Woman’s Club is a philanthropic club that supports local organizations with both time and monetary donations. This year, the Club is supporting the following charities:
Humanitarian Service Project’s – Adopt A Senior Program
Every month of the year, fresh, wholesome, nutritious groceries are delivered directly to the elderly in DuPage and Kane counties to alleviate the suffering and hardships that poverty brings. Learn more about the program here.
Recycle and Reuse with SCARCE
School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education – a non-profit organization committed to finding a way to keep “stuff” out of the landfill by reusing and recycling as much as possible. See www.scarce.org for more information.
CWS Period Pack: Menstrual Hygiene Kit
In many parts of the work, women and girls live in period poverty – lacking access to necessary feminine care supplies. During their cycle, these hygiene materials are especially important to healthy practices. Not having supplies can create challenges that lead to unsafe and unsanitary conditions. The CWS Period Pack gives women and girls the essential they need to feel clean, be healthy and live with dignity during their menstrual cycle. Visit www.cwskits.org for more information.
In addition to these wonder entities, the CSWC has continued to support its community “neighbors in need” when crises arise, with donated clothing, food, diapers and other household supplies.
