Giving Back Exchange 7th Annual Clothing Drive - Thank You!

Thank you to CFE members and guests who donated clothing and accessories at the September dinner program. This year was one of our largest collections to date! Donations were given to The Cara Program to help individuals break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, transform their lives, strengthen the community, and forge paths to real and lasting success.


Downtown Book Club Event
October 16 | 6:30 pm | La Sardine, Chicago

Join fellow CFE members for a Downtown Book Club event with a French theme. The gathering will take place at La Sardine, 111 N. Carpenter Street in Chicago. The book to be discussed is A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemmingway.

Hemingway's memories of his life as an unknown writer living in Paris in the twenties are deeply personal, warmly affectionate and full of wit. Looking back not only at his own much younger self, but also at the other writers who shared Paris with him - James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald - he recalls the time when, poor, happy and writing in cafes, he discovered his vocation. Written during the last years of Hemingway's life, his memoir is a lively and powerful reflection of his genius that scintillates with the romance of the city.

Giving Back Exchange Bright Endeavors Candle Making Event
October 18th | 9 am - 12:15 pm

The Giving Back Exchange invites you to participate in a volunteer session at Bright Endeavors to make candles alongside women participating in the New Moms program. The New Moms program assists adolescent mothers attain financial literacy and self-sufficiency 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.

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. Volunteers are invited to gather at Inspiration Kitchen for lunch following the volunteer event.
