DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club marked the conclusion of their year-long community improvement project with local charity, Sharing Connections at the Fourth Annual Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club Charity Golf Outing on May 17.

Raffle ticket sales at the golf outing raised enough money to purchase seven beds for Sharing Connections clients. Funds raised at the Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club Annual Charity Golf Outing are typically designated for Senior Scholarship Awards and other local charity programs, according to a press release.

The club assisted Sharing Connections in a variety of ways including volunteering more than 100 hours at the Sharing Connections warehouse, donating more than 20 cleaning supply buckets, donating more than 150 pairs of new underwear, providing stamps through Jewel’s Rachel Ray dishware program to supply several families with full sets of dishes, donating 20 gift cards for Sharing Connections’ teenage clients at Christmas and donating 20 hand-made children’s blankets.

DGJWC has yet to determine the community improvement project partner next year. Interested charity groups should contact with proposals by July 2014.
