Holiday Helper 2021

Caring Women's Connection 2021

Celebrate the JOY of Giving to Women and Children in Need here in Lake County!

The past two years have been hard for all of us and the pandemic has made it especially hard for those living in Lake County shelters. Please help in any way you can to make this holiday brighter and filled with hope for women and children needing our care and support more than ever!

The holiday season is about tradition, family and giving. For those less fortunate, it’s a time of struggle and disappointment when there are no decorated trees and a few wrapped presents. This year, we put together several programs to fulfill the needs and wishes of those women and children living in homeless shelters in Lake County to make their holiday season memorable and hopeful. Wherever your heart leads you, please rest assured you will be filling a heart with love this holiday season. 

Adopt A Family Program 

This program provides gifts to the women and children in our love fund shelters. You can adopt an individual or an entire family living at Staben House by providing gifts for the holidays. 

This Program looks different this year. With Covid the shleters and those who depend on them have experienced unexpected challenges. This year their needs are essential. Some Adults will have a Gift Card Option as their (NEED)and a want list. Please feel free to grab something off their want list, but we are hoping to provide the gift cards for them this year. 

All Gifts should be wrapped, or in a gift bag - all gifts should be labeled securely with person's name and family number. 

Please put all gifts in a large garbage bag to protect it from the elements. Tie the bag and label the bag with family number. 

 

Enrich & Empower

We started the Enrich & Empower program a few years ago to address specific needs of those women and children we serve in Lake County. We hope to enrich their lives and empower them to restore self-confidence and ultimately achieve self-sufficiency. During this holiday season, we will be collecting the following items:

1. Toys that are culturally diverse. These items will be given to the children at A Safe Place, a battered women's shelter in Lake County. (Please do NOT wrap these gifts)

2. Winter Boots and Coats to help women & children living in Lake County Haven to get organized and stay focused.  - Listed as LCH - You will be purchasing BOTH Coat & Boots for each women. Please spend between $50 -$75 per person. (Coat colors are a suggestion)

All Gifts should be wrapped, all gifts should be labeled securely with person's name. 

Please put all gifts in a large garbage bag to protect it from the elements. Tie the bag and label the bag with family number. 

3. Collect toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash & deodorant ) As well as Comfy Socks & Candy for women with mental and physical disabilities at Mount St. Joseph in Lake Zurich. Please leave these items unwrapped, as some will be going into gift bags. 

**There are currently 119 ladies living at MSJ and we are looking to fill as many of these needs as possible. We are looking for as many One pair of socks & one Braclet for each women. We will stuff holiday bags with these items & Candy. 

Thank You for partnering with CWC and filling this need this holiday season, it is greatly appreciated!
