Our mission is to make our community a better place while fostering fun and building lifelong friendships. At the Saint Charles Women's Club (SCWC), we organize several fundraising events throughout the year to support local charitable organizations and families in need within D303. Additionally, we proudly sponsor the Sherry Costello Scholarship Fund which provides financial assistance to enter a degree program. Each year, we select two local organizations to partner with. For the 2023-2024 year, we focus our efforts and resources to help support Lazarus House and Fox Valley Hands of Hope.
Examples of Volunteering include:
sherry costello scholarship fund
Our annual scholarship application is now open! Do you know a female senior enrolled in a high school within the D303 boundaries OR an adult female living or working within the D303 boundaries and enrolled in a degree program who would like some financial assistance?
Every year, our club gives out two scholarship to qualified candidates. Please download the application and email it to: SCWCApps@gmail.com by April 15th, 2024.
We provide support to families in need throughout the D303 school district, including holiday meals, holiday gifts to children in need and breakfast bars throughout the school year.
Each month our group gets together to pack lunches for those who are staying at Lazarus House. We also prepare dinners, host special evenings for the guests and have multiple fundraising events throughout the year to support this organization.
Fox Valley Hands for Hope
We are delighted to provide a helping hand to support the Fox Valley Hands of Hope programs for the community. We help make, pack and deliver cookies for their volunteers. And we provide assistance throughout the year during their many fundraising events and programs for the community.
