Comfort in crisis

Students, faculty and staff at Northwestern College's Bridgeview campus, 7725 Harlem Ave., recently conducted a community service project benefiting the Crisis Center for South Suburbia. Seen here are Sheila Blunt of Chicago (from left), Kathleen Stewart of Oak Lawn, Scherice Scott of Markham, Patti Guevara of Chicago, Kathy Kruse of Naperville, and Portia Rylon of Chicago.

The college collected bags of clothing and toys donated by Northwestern College's students, faculty and staff in support of women and children who are victims of domestic violence. The Crisis Center, in Tinley Park, is a nonprofit community organization that provides emergency shelter and other essential services for individuals and families that have been victimized by domestic violence.
