Having Trouble Finding a Charity?

This year our club will be donating to the YWCA for Elkhart County.

The YWCA helps women and children that do not have a place to turn.  Women that are trying to a make a better life for themselves and their children need a little helping hand at times.  The YWCA provides that helping hand.

During the holiday season the collect donations for gifts for children and gifts for the mothers.  Mothers will get one evening to go and “shop” for the their children out of the donated items.  Children will also get one evening to “shop” for their mom.

If you would like to make a donation to help these families have something new in their lives, put a smile on their faces, and help with that fresh start please join us.

Donations can include new toys, books, games, toiletries, hats, gloves, robes, etc.  You can decide what you would like to donate.

If you would like to help with this event or give a donation please contact Christy Bollinger.  Donations will need to be turned into Christy Bollinger by December 10th.  Contact her to find out where to drop your donations.  260-414-7403.

End of Year Giving

The Purdue Club of Elkhart County is working hard to provide scholarships to Elkhart and LaGrange County students attending Purdue.  Last year our club awarded a total of $21,000 to Purdue students.  This scholarship award is the third highest award in the state of Indiana and  the nation from a Purdue Alumni Club (higher are Marshall County and St Joe Valley).  We hope to continue this tradition and we are asking for your help.
Purdue Club of Elkhart County Foundation would like to remind all members that we now have a Scholarship Endowment set up with the Community Foundation of Elkhart County.  Any donations received by the Elkhart County Foundation for our club will be  matched 25% by ECCF.
If you would like to make a donation to our club for scholarship through the Elkhart County Community Foundation please go to https://www.inspiringgood.org/ and type in the Purdue Club of Elkhart County in the organization box.
Thanks and wishing you all the best this holiday season.
