Overview

Community Outreach is an umbrella for all of our contributions to the community, making volunteer opportunities available and determining the most impactful way to distribute funds raised by other committees.

  • The Community Outreach At Large subcommittee manages and coordinates our ongoing volunteer projects with partner agencies (such as Deacon’s Closet and Soup Kitchen) as well as our recurring, annual outreach projects (such as the Family Focus Holiday Gift Drive and the MLK Day of Service).
  • The Contributions subcommittee carefully selects the recipients for the charitable funds raised by the club. Committee members evaluate grant applications submitted by area non-profits, meeting intensely in mid-winter. Two years of club experience are required to serve on this committee.
  • Every April, the Dreams Delivered subcommittee transforms our clubhouse into a very special prom boutique by providing new and nearly new formal dresses, accessories and shoes free of charge to any Evanston Township High School girl. Dreams Delivered committee members will participate in Community Outreach At Large, with occasional additional subcommittee meetings prior to the event.
  • Members of the Sewing Circle subcommittee meet monthly to create baby layettes, cancer comfort pillows and adaptive clothing for injured US service personnel. Daytime availability is important to serve on this committee.
