The National Council of Jewish Women—Chicago North Shore Section’s Luggage for Freedom Project held their annual Pack and Delivery Day Oct. 23. Over 90 volunteers of all ages gathered at West Ridge Center in Highland Park to pack over 150 suitcases filled with sheets, towels, purses and toiletries, as well as 175 children’s backpacks filled with books, stuffed animals, handmade pencil cases, fleece blankets and other small items made by the children volunteering that day. All the luggage and items packed were donated by members of the community and the businesses listed below. The bags were delivered by Luggage for Freedom volunteers to six domestic violence shelters in Lake and Cook County.
We would like to thank our hard working and dedicated new and returning volunteers. Without our volunteers’ commitment, our program would not be possible. We’re grateful to everyone who helped us make a difference in our community.
We would also like to extend our deepest appreciation to the following businesses for their invaluable support and donations: American Hotel Register Company, The Art Room, Extra Space Storage in Highland Park, Golan’s Moving & Storage, Kaehler Luggage, Marriott Courtyard – Lincolnshire, Ross Discount, Staples, Inc., Sunstar Americas, Waste Management, Inc. and West Ridge Center in Highland Park. We are so appreciative of their support!
