Glen Ellyn Infant Welfare Society was started in 1926 by five women who saw children lacking basic nutrition - so they came together, made and sold aprons, and used the money to buy milk for the families in need. For more than 90 years, the women of Glen Ellyn Infant Welfare have carried on the legacy to ensure the well-being of local children and families in need. Through volunteering and fundraising efforts, we partner with our generous neighbors and business community to raise much-needed funds for excellent area non-profits that do the daily hard work of serving the local community with a focus on providing food, shelter, and the basic tools and resources for a child or family in need. GEIW also awards two scholarships each year to students from Glen Ellyn high schools to attend College of DuPage - high-achieving scholars who could not otherwise afford to continue their education.
