The Share the Plate recipient for the month of October is the
YWCA of Elgin
Every year we work together to support the mission of the YWCA of Elgin by collecting funds and participating in their “Giving Tree” Program.
YWCA Elgin is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.We will get a head start this season by collecting funds in October and starting our Secret Santa shopping in November. We do this on behalf of youngsters in the youth program. Those who wish to purchase gifts themselves will be able to get a head start on shopping in order to deal with challenges in the supply chain and delivery delays, and other folks who would rather not shop can donate money for children’s gifts that some willing members will shop for on their behalf. Programs of the YWCA include:
- Citizenship Services
- ESL Family Literacy
- COVID-19 Assistance & Resources
- School Age Child Care
- Workforce Development
- and YWCA Elgin is now a proud provider of “Tiny Boots,” free childcare for Veterans!
