Check OUT SOME OF THE CHARITIES WE LOVE
Family Shelter Service
Family Shelter Service mission is to transform lives by offering help and hope to those affected by domestic violence. By supporting Family Shelter Service in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn and Downers Grove, PJ Tube is assisting in providing help & hope to victims of domestic violence and their families. Family Shelter Services provides individual and group counseling, court advocacy and services, shelter and children’s service, just to mention a few. Every dollar donated helps Family Shelter Service provide these life-changing services to victims and their children and allows them to live violence free lives.
People's Resource Center
PJ Tube is a regular supporter of People's Resource Center community which exists "to respond to basic human needs, promote dignity and justice, and create a future of hope and opportunity for the residents of DuPage County, Illinois through discovering and sharing personal and community resources”. Phillips & Johnston’s donations help those in need in DuPage County become victors of circumstances. Peoples Resource center services include food pantry, clothing connection, emergency rent & mortgage assistance, computer skills, adult & family literacy, job assistance, arts studio and holiday help.
Letters to Santa
Every December, PJ Tube participates in the Letters to Santa program, which makes holiday wishes come true for needy children in Chicago. This event is a part of the Season for Sharing campaign that benefits the Chicago Sun-Times-sponsored Charity Trust. Low-income children from more than 160 schools write letters to Santa each holiday season asking for gifts they would like to receive. Most children come from single-parent homes, some of them live with their grandparents and a lot of parents are unemployed and are unable to provide a gift for their children. Students often ask for basic necessities such as winter coats, gloves and boots. This year PJ Tube employees were fortunate to put smiles on 30 faces of kindergartners at an Elementary school in Little Village neighborhood, Hammond Elementary.
NAMI DuPage County
PJ Tube proudly supports National Alliance on Mental Illness of DuPage County. “NAMI DuPage is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, a nationwide mental health advocacy organization dedicated to improving the quality of lives of people affected by mental illnesses.

NAMI’s mission is to provide support, advocacy and education in order to improve the quality of life of individuals with mental illnesses and their families.
Easter Seals Disability Services

PJ Tube's donations help support Villa Park Easter Seals services such as employment & training, medical rehabilitation, adult & senior services, camping & recreation, military & veterans.
SharingConnections brings together community members by enabling families and businesses to share their gently used furniture and household items with families needing assistance. This is a unique opportunity for the community to directly make an impact by passing on something they no longer need to make a difference in the life of a family.
