Serve others at the Farm

Women of West Ridge and Ruth Project are looking for volunteers (ages 5 and up) to volunteer at the Ruth Project Farm in Sycamore IL on Saturday, July 20 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  This is an awesome place to show your skills and help a very special cause.  Ruth Project is a non-profit organization based in Elgin, IL that serves families with foster children.  The Women of West Ridge volunteer twice a year to help at their Elgin boutique-like storefront where they provide clothing, toys, and other support to the families. They now have a farm in Sycamore that is used to hold events, but also to provide respite to the families, allowing them to relax and have family time together. The Women of West Ridge love supporting the Ruth Project and invite you to join us!

  • Cleaning (Farmhouse, Ice Cream Shop, Play Barn, Grandpa’s Workshop)
