The Lombard Junior Women's Club has recently donated $225 to the Humanitarian Service Project (HSP) of DuPage County. This donation will go towards supporting the Senior Citizen Project, which provides groceries and gifts to needy seniors in DuPage and Kane Counties.

The Lombard Junior Women's Club has supported HSP for over 20 years, and has sponsored a senior citizen in Lombard annually for the past 12. The club hosts a variety of fundraisers and events, most notably their annual "Bistros of the 'Burbs", where you can sample cuisine from over 20 different local restaurants, and participate in auctions and raffles. The funds from these events are donated to a "multitude of causes", one being their signature project, TLC Camp, which is a summer camp run by the club that allows children with cancer and a sibling to participate in a fun-filled week of activities. The current president of the club is Stacy Schroeder, and meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month at Lexington Square of Lombard.
