WHEATON — The Wheaton Chapter of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago is seeking new members to help support the services and programs it offers women and children in the Chicago area.
Health-based services and programs include well-being and sick visits, early childhood development services, asthma care, pediatric dental care, orthodontics, optometry services and infant mental health services.
The Wheaton Chapter is one of 15 chapters charged with raising money and awareness for the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago. The chapters, which are located throughout Chicago and the suburbs, engage in community outreach by sponsoring educational enrichment programs and a Resale Shop.
The Wheaton Chapter holds various fundraising activities throughout the year, including the Playing “Fore” the Kids golf outing and luncheon, Luminaria sales at Christmas time, gift certificate sales and more.
The chapter also awards a $500 scholarship to a high school senior and Wheaton resident "who has exemplified a spirit of volunteerism and community involvement during his/her high school experience," according to a chapter news release.
