    Be part of Sarah's Circle's Annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes!

    As Sarah's Circle celebrates its 40th anniversary, there are still thousands of women who need our help. That's #WhyWeWalk.

           For 40 years, Sarah's Circle's has been helping Chicago's most vulnerable women. Winter Walk is our chance to get involved and raise crucial funds for women in need.
            Women come to Sarah's Circle every day for help, and they need your support! You can participate by making a donation to the Sisters of IBEW Local #134 fundraising team to rally more support for vulnerable women. Please go to our fundraising page: 
     If you can attend the walk, please join us! Bring your family!                                                                                 The walk will cover a 1 mile route through the Uptown neighborhood. Women affected by homelessness will share stories of how Sarah’s Circle helped them rebuild their lives. A shortened route and special activities will be provided for children. All walkers will receive a free lunch after the walk, including hot dogs and veggie dogs.
