State’s Attorney’s Office employees donate clothing to women and children of Lamb’s Fold


JOLIET – Employees from the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office have collected more than 60 gift bags full of new clothing to donate to the Lamb’s Fold Center for Women and Children.


A Giving Tree was set up at the State’s Attorney’s Chicago Street Office with ornaments indicating sizes and items for a mother or child in need of clothes this holiday season. This is the second year the State’s Attorney’s Office has sponsored the Giving Tree to benefit Lamb’s Fold. Legal Secretary Valerie Walsh organized the collection effort.


“It’s an honor to work with such generous people who go out of their way to help others during the holidays,” State’s Attorney Glasgow said. “The staff at my office knows of the important services that Lamb’s Fold provides to vulnerable women and children. That’s why our lobby was filled with gift bags for those in need.”


Lamb's Fold Center for Women and Children provides transitional housing and domestic violence services to homeless women and children and victims of domestic violence.
