North Shore Helpers

This is our second year helping those in need in the Chicago area.  This year we are raising money to buy necessities and holiday gifts for the women and their children being supported by CAWC - Connections for Abused Women and their Children.   This is their mission:

"Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) is committed to ending domestic violence. Using a self-help, empowerment approach, we provide a shelter for women and children, counseling, advocacy, and a 24-hour hotline for people affected by domestic violence. We work for social change through education, service collaboration, and institutional advocacy." 

You can visit their website here to learn more about the great work they do.

Please help us surpass our goal of $4,000 to make it a better holiday season for these families that are experiencing so much hardship.
