Success Stories

Impruve


We have been a self-funded all volunteer nonprofit for 16 years. Thanks to the generosity of Carson's, committed volunteers, and persons who believe in our mission, we were able to meet our sales goal in 2015 and spring 2016 to fund the first leg of our Paratransit Minuteman Campaign in order to help seniors, young people, persons who are deaf or blind, and persons who have intellectual disabilities to file civil rights complaints with the FTA  (Federal Transit Administration) on the paratransit service.  Each Community Days event, our goal is to fund the costs of our advocacy campaigns.   The campaign we face requires us to help at least 4300 persons who  ride paratransit. Approximatey 50,000 persons in Illinois are certified to ride.  The principals of IMPRUVE also ride paratransit.  It is difficult to reach the approximate 30,000 riders in Chicago, much less the entire state without adequate transportation, trust, training of volunteers, and funds for copies, printing, banners, postage, legal advocacy,  wheelchair taxis, paratransit fare, trainfare, and reimbursement of volunteer expenses.  Patience, persistence, mitigation of fear by seniors of being terminated or exploited and developing trust are key components to working with persons who are disabled.  The entire campaign is costly, but our goal is to raise $15,000 more from 2016-17 for the Paratransit Minuteman Campaign from all possible means of fund raising. WE WILL NOT BE SILENT. www.impruve.org

LUNGevity


This is the 3rd year we've participated and it is such a rewarding fundraiser for all involved.  Community Days helps us fund research and is a great way to spread awareness about the stigma associated with lung cancer.  Lung Cancer is not only a smokers' disease and it is no longer a death sentence thanks to organizations like Bon-Ton who help us fund research into early detection, customized treatment options and on-line support for patients, caregivers and their families.

It's fun to be able to set up in the store and pass along the great savings in such a friendly environment. FIND IT - TREAT IT - LIVE!  and shop!
