WBN Annual Service Project
Each year, WBN chooses a deserving organization for its annual service project. Chapters may submit an application on behalf of an organization they feel would benefit from some type of active participation from our WBN members. Throughout the year, different activities/fundraising opportunities for the service project take place.
A call for applications takes place annually. Learn more about the application requirements.
2022-2023 Service Project
We are proud to announce our 2022-2023 Service Project, Treasure House Fashions! Located at 7607 McKnight Road, the purpose of Treasure House Fashions is “promoting the dignity and self-esteem of women, particularly women in transition or crisis. Outward appearance is not an accurate reflection of your worth, but it can affirm the treasure that you truly are!”
Treasure House Fashions is open to the public, offering quality clothing at deeply discounted prices for woman from size 0 – 4X. They also serve as a liaison for over 65 different area agencies that address the various needs of local woman who are in times of transition ranging from homelessness and addiction, to divorce care and health problems. These woman are the recipient of a gift certificate to Treasure House, allowing them to fill their closet and boost their self-esteem while also maintaining their dignity.

How To Help
Purse Bash 2022
Sunday Brunch at the LeMont on October 23 Noon-3PM with a spectacular view of the city! Still looking for Sponsors at various levels (you could be a sponsor as a chapter – just saying. Sponsor sheet attached). And, of course, we’d LOVE to have you attend! Details about the event and tickets are available at the shop or online.
Social Girls Night Out
One chapter is already planning to use a Social GNO at our House as their recruitment event! Whether its recruitment or just gals gathering for FUN, we’re here for YOU!! We host Social GNOs on TUE, WED, or THUR evenings 5:30-7:30PM. Refreshments are optional: wine and cheese, milk and cookies…as elaborate or simplistic as you choose! You provide the refreshments and utensils – we’ll give 60% OFF to all attendees and share inspiring stories of the women we serve.
"Pay It Forward Gift Certificate"
The current economy has increased those in need! In fact, women who never had to ask for help before are coming forward to say they need help! When you underwrite a Pay It Forward eGift-Card, we keep them at our register. When an unexpected “need” arises, we’re able to say, “a woman know doesn’t even know you, cared enough to leave this here for you! You are sooooo loved!” We’ve watched many tears of gratitude flow from such acts of kindness! Secure eGift-Cards here: https://www.thfashions.org/egift-cards/
