This week Jeanne Ives, Republican Candidate for Congress (IL-6), met with Beth Carey, Development Director, and Ryan Varju, Chief Operating Officer, of Sharing Connections. They spoke with Ives about the work they do and gave the candidate a tour of their warehouse and offices located in Downers Grove Illinois.
"I was so impressed with Beth and Ryan's passion for their work," said Ives. "They provide cribs and beds to children and families in crisis situations, along with other furniture to help make their house a home. They have made a huge impact throughout Northern Illinois, distributing donated furniture and household items to over 9,800 individuals annually."
