The North End Mothers’ Club, one of Evanston’s oldest philanthropic organizations, has donated more than $34,000 to 14 Evanston organizations that provide services that support Evanston youth.
Recipients of the 2012 donations include The Infant Welfare Society, TED Fund, Child Care Center of Evanston, Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association (ESCCA), YWCA Domestic Violence Services, Cherry Pre-School, Evanston In School Music Association (EISMA), YMCA, and Kids and School Supplies (KASS). Curt’s Café, Youth Organization’s Umbrella (YOU), Little Grace Notes and the Evanston Symphony Orchestra were first-time recipients.
The North End Mothers’ Club also continued its long-standing support of the Evanston 4th of July Association with both a monetary contribution and by sponsoring the Chicago Highlanders Pipe Band in the recent 4th of July Parade.
“Each of these organizations help make Evanston the type of community where we want to live and raise our families,” said policy chair Karin Ruetzel. “We are pleased to be able to provide them with support.”
NEMC also funds four scholarships, worth $10,000, for Evanston High School seniors.
