The Palatine Jaycees will distribute $16,000 among 16 organizations in August. "This is the reason I became a Jaycee," said Chrissy Trilling-Raices, co-chairwoman of the donations panel. "When I see how we've helped the community, I realize that all of the hard work we do throughout the year is worthwhile." Donations range from $450 to $2,500 and the money is going to: Little Sisters of the Poor-St. Joseph's Home for the Elderly; Shelter, Inc.; OMNI Youth Services; Center for Enriched Living; Children's Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County; ChildServ; Palatine Assisting Through Hope; Countryside Association for People with Disabilities; Escorted Transportation Services Northwest; Northeast Palatine Summer Camp; Palatine Opportunity Center-Roots Community Garden; The Bridge Youth and Family Services; Palatine Emergency Management Agency; Alexian Brothers Center for Mental Health; District 15 Education Foundation; and Children's Home and Society of Illinois.
