Yorkville Fee My Starving Children
Hello everyone and welcome to the It Takes a Village- Yorkville Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack Event! On Friday January 13th and Saturday January 14th, we will be flooding the Yorkville Middle School cafeteria with people looking to make a difference in the world. Feed My Starving Children is a FABULOUS 501c3 organization with packing locations around the country. We are blessed to have one so close to us in Aurora by the Fox Valley Mall.

For those of you that have been there before, you know just how fantastic of a time it is to gather friends, family, and coworkers, spend 2 hours of your time to make a HUGE impact in the lives of starving children around the world. We are going to be doing the same thing, just in our own community. 

We have pledged to pay for and pack 108,000 meals at our event. I would love to bump that number way up if we can. We will need about 544 volunteers and are collectively responsible for fundraising $24,000 to pay for the food we are packing. If we raise more money, we will need more volunteers and will be able to pack more meals. We are looking for corporate sponsors, individual sponsors, children sponsors, all sorts of different ways I have no doubt we can do it. Fundraising ideas will be in a separate post.

Edward-Elmhurst Health

Pam Davis announces retirement effective June 30, 2017

System CEO Pam Davis has announced her decision to retire from Edward-Elmhurst Health effective June 30, 2017. After more than 28 years leading Edward, and subsequently Edward-Elmhurst, Davis recently notified the System Board of Trustees about her plans. Davis said, “It is difficult to adequately express how wonderful these years have been for me. I am so proud to be associated with all of you – dedicated colleagues and friends who help people lead healthier lives and comfort patients in their most vulnerable hours. Thank you for everything that you have done for me. My heart is full.”

Edward-Elmhurst Board Chair Ron Schubel said, “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Pam for her outstanding contributions to this healthcare system, and to the communities we serve. She has been a catalyst for so many advancements in healthcare in this region and beyond.”

Mastro, Dunley Promoted
The Board announced the appointment of Edward-Elmhurst veteran Mary Lou Mastro, MS, RN, FACHE, as System CEO of Edward-Elmhurst Health effective July 1, 2017. Davis and Mastro will be System Co-CEOs Jan. 1 to June 30 to facilitate a smooth transition. Hospital CEOs and System Executive Vice Presidents will report to Mastro. Schubel said that after June 30 Davis will continue as CEO Emeritus through 2017 reporting to the Edward-Elmhurst Board of Trustees. Schubel said, “We have been working with Pam for some time on an orderly and thoughtful succession plan which we have activated upon her decision. We are extremely pleased to announce Mary Lou as the new leader of our system. She will provide continuity and will lead us into a successful future.” Mastro joined Davis at Edward in 1988. An inspiring leader throughout her tenure, Mastro has held many operational and management roles.  She served previously as President of Linden Oaks at Edward and is currently President & CEO of Elmhurst Hospital where she has led record volume growth and financial stability. With more than 35 years working in hospitals, Mastro brings extensive experience in hospital strategy, operations, planning, licensure and regulatory compliance, public policy and advocacy, physician relations, new business development, and patient care.  Davis added, “I’m extremely pleased that Lou has been named as my successor. She is a tremendous leader and colleague who will do great things at Edward-Elmhurst.” Pamela Dunley, MBA, MS, RN, CENP, has been appointed President & CEO of Elmhurst Hospital effective Jan. 1. Dunley has served as the Chief Operating Officer/Chief Nursing Officer of Elmhurst Hospital for the past ten years. She joined Elmhurst Hospital in 1997 and has served in various leadership roles. She was a member of the executive leadership team of Elmhurst that planned and built the state-of-the-art replacement hospital which opened in 2011. Dunley was instrumental in Elmhurst’s journey to become a Planetree Designated Organization and achieve Magnet Status for Nursing Excellence.

Celebrate Differences

A Pinch of Happiness Spice Shop
Numbers released late last week from the U.S. Department of Labor indicate that the jobless rate for people with disabilities rose to 9.9 percent last month. That’s up markedly from 8.7 percent reported the month prior.  More individuals with disabilities are wanting to work but the opportunities are not there. Nor do these individuals always have the skills they need to join the workforce.

For some time, Celebrate Differences has been looking for a means to  get these individuals the skills they need with a goal of more employers offering employment opportunities.  In October, Celebrate Differences found a way with the purchase of a spice shop, formerly known as Sage. At A Pinch Of Happiness Spice Shop, individuals with disabilities will have an opportunity to be a part of a training program to learn job skills.  After completing the program, which will include obtaining a food handler certification, classroom work and an internship in the shop, Celebrate Differences is confident these individuals will be ready for the workforce.  The board at Celebrate Differences is hopeful that once the community sees what these individuals are capable of doing, more doors will be opened at other places of business and jobs will be offered.

So Celebrate Differences invites you to visit A Pinch Of Happiness, located at 74 W Washington, Oswego.  When you make a purchase, you are not only getting premium spices, but you are helping to make a difference and putting a little happiness in someone's life.

Currently our hours are M-T-Th-F 10-4 and Wed 12-6.  If you need spices, tea or coffee please stop in. If you own a restaurant and need spices we can help. We also make gift baskets and can customize our labels to promote your business. Contact us at 630-806-4990 with any questions and please help us spread the word. We can't wait to share "A Pinch Of Happiness" with the world!

Giving Tuesday
The holiday season is quickly approaching and we are excited to announce that Voluntary Action Center/Kendall Area Transit will be participating in #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is like Black Friday and Shop Local. Instead of buying goods you help support one of your favorite causes or volunteer your time to those in need.

Voluntary Action Center is proud to serve the Kendall County community and we hope to do so for many years to come. A donation as little as $100 could help KAT provide as many at six rides to those in our community that need them the most.

Please support us this #GivingTuesday no donation is too small.
