The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club is proud to once again partner with Will County Take Back the Night for their annual vigil and march to help raise awareness on the issue of domestic violence. Take Back the Night brings survivors, supporters, activists, and community leaders together in a call for the end of violence against women. This year, the 18th annual event will be held on Thursday, October 2nd at the north end of the Joliet Memorial Stadium. JJWC member Sherry Anicich will be speaking with Kellie Stryker at this year’s event. JJWC will host a poster table and donate poster-making material so those attending the march will have an opportunity to make signs to honor their loved ones who were lost or have suffered from domestic violence.
All are welcome to attend! To learn more about joining JJWC or to request more information, please visit our Membership page.
The Religious Education program at Holy Family Parish in Shorewood participated in the annual Alisha & Ava Lucille Bromfield Memorial Baby Drive. Over 900 baby bottles were provided to students to collect change. The money raised would sponsor the baby of a young single mother and support the Joliet Junior Woman’s Club Alisha and Ava Bromfield Memorial Community Scholarship.
The response was overwhelming! Along with $2453.12 in change and bills, hundreds of items were collected including diapers, blankets, wipes, and clothing.
