The Giving Back Exchange is pleased to announce its 2017 fourth quarter event.  Join us for a volunteer session at Bright Endeavors on Tuesday, October 24, from 9am to Noon.  Plan to take a few hours off and join us for the morning to make candles alongside the Bright Endeavors young moms. 

As you may remember, we partnered with Bright Endeavors to create a memorial candle for Cynthia Lafuente that was offered for sale at the YWCA Grand Opening event. From Cyndi’s generous bequest, approximately $25,000 was awarded to New Moms and its Bright Endeavors program which they used to buy a van for transporting candles and to renovate the Bright Endeavors computer labs. 

Sharing the same founder as The Enterprising Kitchen (which Cyndi supported while a CFE member), New Moms assists adolescent mothers attain financial literacy and self-sufficiency through its Bright Endeavors program by providing intensive training and a pathway out of poverty for young mothers in Chicago as they transition into quality, permanent employment. Participants gain job skills as they produce premium soy candles and bath products.

This volunteer opportunity will allow you to make candles with the Bright Endeavors young moms cohort and see Cyndi's bequest in action.  The Bright Endeavors young moms will teach us how to make candles and then we can all work together making candles to fulfill their holiday season orders.

Space is limited.  Please RSVP soon to reserve your spot in the group.  This is a terrific opportunity to volunteer with your fellow CFE members.

Volunteers will receive a confirmation email with directions and additional details.
