Following up on the story I wrote about here, where the funding had been cut drastically for Turning Point, a Chicago-area shelter serving women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Fundraising efforts, including the Star 105.5 radiothon, online donations (yay, Shakers!), and food donations to the pantry, have raised $70,000 for the center.
A warm and grateful thanks to everyone who donated where they could.
FYI, you can still pitch in by visiting their website and clicking on the "donate now" button.
Thanks so much!
