Villa Park Women's League 2018-19 Philanthropy
The Villa Park Women’s League since its inception has played many roles. One of which is the commitment to giving back to our community. As part of this philanthropic effort, the League allocates monies to our four Villa Park schools, local library, Villa Park Foundation, city beautification as well as student scholarships. These “gifts” of philanthropy are a very important tradition/heritage of the Villa Park Women’s League.
The Giving Tree 2018
The holidays were shining bright once again as the Villa Park Women’s League delivered an overflowing sleigh of toys and gift cards to the children of The Friendly Center and Orange Children and Parents Together organizations! The annual toy drive was a huge success with abundant participation as many league members joined in the spirit of giving this holiday season. With much joy and excitement, two car loads of toys and gift cards were delivered the first week in December just in time for holiday celebrations! Thank you to all who gave so generously to make the holidays special for these precious children in our community. And a special thank you to the VP Pharmacy and The Flowery for their contributions and support. Happy New Year to all!
Women Helping Women
The VPWL will be holding a clothing drive benefitting the WHW organization, a wonderful non profit that aids the unemployed and the underemployed in our community giving them the skills and resources they need to get and keep a good job. A great reason to do some spring cleaning and purge through those closets!

After much deliberation regarding allocation of the 2018-19 philanthropy funds, the Executive and Advisory Board unanimously voted to honor the 2017 Member Survey results. City Beautification and our VP Schools ranked #1 and #2 of programs the League should sponsor.
Therefore, additional support will be given to Beautification, and the remaining funds will be granted equally to our four Villa Park schools!
