Charity of The Season:

Each year we focus on three non-profits for our "Charity of the Season". 
RJWC members are introduced to the organization, their mission and then are encouraged to donate items that have been requested.

Our current Charity of the Season is
Fisher House at Hines VA Hospital 

For our Fall charity of the Season we will be collecting much needed items for Hines Fisher House until November 8, 2018. Hines Fisher House is a "home away from home" for family members, caregivers or loved ones of patients receiving medical care at the Hines VA medical center.

Donations can be dropped off in a plastic bin on Elke's front covered stoop or in her mailbox at 134 Fairbank Rd. Questions feel free to contact Elke at or 312-961-7115. Check out the list on the link, and drop something off : Fisher House Wish List


Past Charities of the Season have included:
A children's book drive benefitting Reach Out and Read Illinois, Oak Park’s Animal Care Leauge, Reclaim 13, Riverside Food Pantry, Seguin Services

Annual Breakfast with Santa

Every year the Riverside Town Hall Auditorium is filled with the sights and sounds of Christmas.  Children play games/crafts, snack on breakfast goodies and get one on one time with the Big Man himself.  It is a magical holiday tradition.
