LET’S MAKE IT A SPECIAL MOTHER’S DAY
FOR THE WOMEN AT THE DOWNERS GROVE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER
The women of NCJW have long supported a local domestic violence shelter run by the Family Shelter Services of DuPage. The Shelter serves women and their children who are victims of domestic violence by providing housing, meals, counseling and personal essentials. Women are taught job skills and employment before they move into their own apartments. It has become our tradition to show our support for these women who have been threatened by violence by giving them each, a very special Mother’s Day basket.
The women at the shelter so often arrive with little more than the clothes they are wearing. We will fill Mother’s Day baskets with lotions, perfumes, gift certificates, chocolates and other items that would be “luxuries” at this time.
Help make this a special Mother’s Day for the women at the shelter, and at the same time, honor a special woman in your life.
For each donation of at least $18.00, we will send a Mother’s Day card to your mother, aunt, daughter or anyone else you choose. She will know that in her honor, NCJW delivered baskets and best wishes to the women at the shelter – a double mitzvah. Or, you may wish to send a card in memory of a loved one – and their memory shall be a blessing.
To help us help the women at the shelter and to support the ongoing work of NCJW on behalf of women and children, please complete the order form below by April 27, 2017.
