DGJWC Philanthropy

The Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club is a philanthropic organization dedicated to supporting our community.  The money we raise supports local children, senior citizens, the abused, the ill, the homeless, victims of tragedy and needy families.

Elf Shelf

Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club hosted the annual Elf Shelf night at Emmett’s on November 28. Such a great tradition and fun night. Our very own Stephanie Vroman provided her auctioneer talents and her elves Anne Healy and Michele Reichl helped to live auction gift baskets, experiences and home made treats all donated and provided by club members. We raised over $3,400 to provide Christmas gifts and meals to 5 local families. We are so proud of our members! Thank you to all who attended, bid, purchased and donated!
