Naperville, IL -- The Naperville Junior Woman’s Club collected $910 or 91 rolls of quarters to donate to Families Helping Families for their clients’ use. Every year Naperville Junior Woman’s Club (NJWC) runs a coin drive to collect change for Families Helping Families (FHF) who assist families living in DuPage County who are experiencing job loss or are temporarily homeless and in need financial support.
Juniors collected coins throughout 2013, exchanged the money for rolls of quarters and donated them to help with laundry costs of those families who rely on Families Helping Families for day-to-day survival. Jill Holman, liaison for FHF was very grateful and appreciative of the effort. Holman was thrilled to receive the coins, “Thank you to the NJWC for the donation of a ‘million’ quarters. That is so awesome…the moms get so excited to receive donated quarters for their laundry. Not only does it save them money but it saves them the hassle of going to the bank every week for quarters.“
“Our members strive to make a difference with any type of project because we believe even the smallest good deed can mean the world to someone,” said Diana Williams, NJWC, President.
The Naperville Junior Woman’s Club is looking for energetic, enthusiastic women to join our Club. Each year our members give thousands of hours of service to the community and thousands of dollars to various charitable organizations including Safety Town.
