Arlington Heights Junior Woman's Club
The Arlington Heights Junior Woman’s Club was formed in 1933 by a young woman who wished to carry out community philanthropic projects. The main objective, which still holds true today, is to “Live each day, trying to accomplish something, not merely to exist.”
We are non-political and non-sectarian.
The AHJWC members include working professionals, stay-at-home moms and business owners. Our membership spans several age groups, from young singles or recently married women, to mothers with children ranging in age from infant to college age.
Arlington Heights Junior Woman’s Club is a diverse, brilliant group of women, driven to make a positive impact in the community of Arlington Heights, while forming friendships and making memories.
Our service projects over the years have changed to meet the current needs and lifestyles of the community. Some of our past projects have included painting a cartoon mural in the Pediatric Ward at Northwest Community Hospital and creating a needlepoint alphabet quilt that hangs in the children’s department at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. Our club was also the driving force in coordinating the Arlington Heights Farmer’s Market and starting the popular SafetyTown project.
Club’s fund raising efforts continue throughout the year and allow us to make contributions to a number of organizations in need. Our annual spring fundraiser is the largest effort of the year and culminates in a social event which raises thousands of dollars for selected organizations. In combination with other small fundraisers, we are able to make yearly monetary donations to local, state, and federal philanthropies. Our fundraisers are a source of pride for our organization and we continue to be regarded as an outstanding club by the community.
