YWCA Evanston/North Shore announced that it recently received a donation of $5,000 from Evanston Hospital, which is part of NorthShore University Health System, an integrated healthcare delivery system headquartered in Evanston.
According to a NorthShore University Health System spokesperson, the employees of Evanston Hospital voted to give the donation to YWCA Evanston/North Shore, selecting from a group of “worthy Evanston organizations” for this year-end gift.
“We are so honored and grateful that Evanston Hospital, which is such an integral part of our local communities, selected the YWCA as the recipient of this donation,” said Karen Singer, president and CEO of YWCA Evanston/North Shore. “Evanston Hospital and the NorthShore system have been longstanding partners with us in our efforts to end violence and work for racial justice, including serving as a sponsor of our annual Race Against Hate.
“The many ways we’ve worked together over the years makes this gift even more meaningful,” she said.
Said Douglas Silverstein, president of Evanston Hospital, “Our team members at NorthShore Evanston Hospital recognize the importance of all of YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s health and wellness endeavors and we’re especially proud to support the YWCA’s comprehensive domestic violence services to those who need it across our communities.”
