Skokie Community Foundation is immensely grateful to the Village of Skokie employees who have supported us through the Village of Skokie payroll charity campaign. To show our gratitude, a reception was held on Friday, June 16 for Village employees who donated to the campaign.
Representatives from 2023 SCF grant recipients Connections for the Homeless and Early Childhood Alliance (ECA) shared stories about the direct impact their organizations have had in improving the lives of Skokie residents using their grant funds.
Pictured here (L to R) are Abigail Stone (Board of Directors Member, Connections for the Homeless), Kelsey Caspersen (Director of Government Relations, Connections for the Homeless), Jim Szczepaniak (Executive Director, SCF), Astrid Suarez (Director of Collective Impact, ECA), and Tina Vanderwarker (Director, ECA).
A special thank you to the team at Highpoint at 8000 North for providing their rooftop as the venue, and to the team at Libertad for facilitating the refreshments.
