Holiday Drive at Clara's House
Now that the holiday season is around the corner. We ask that the UIC community donates from their heart to those single women and children staying at Clara's House. These donations may seem like simple items to our daily lives, but for those at the shelter and others alike, these are necessities that are hard to come by. This holiday drive can provide single women and children staying at Clara's House the comfort of home with your donations.
Clara's House is one of many Chicago land Shelters that struggle to get resources for the individuals staying there. Single women and children are struggling to survive and rely on these resources because of the well-known crises of violence, joblessness and poverty here in the city. This shelter provides the basic needs of life which are safety and nutrition. This community focuses on empowering women through education, healthcare and job skills with a goal of getting mothers on solid ground and able to provide a household in which their children will succeed upon leaving the shelter.
