Hi all. Not sure if you were aware but Jan from Jan's Antiques moved her business to Evanston from the Fulton District a few months back. Her landlord asked her to leave the space she leased for over 10 years. Not many people know this but she has suffered through huge inventory loses, a stressful move, major health problems and a car accident that totaled her car. Thankfully she and the other driver were not injured. She is without a car and has a loner until the end of the month but does not have a plan after she returns the car. I know this is a stretch and wanted to reach out to WL community to see if anyone has or knows someone who might be willing to donate a car. I would take care of picking it up and handling all the ownership paperwork. Even if you don't have a car ask your friends and family. It would be awesome if we could find a way to help her out!

I would like to keep this request from Jan if I can so don't mention anything to her if you know her or happen to bump into her.

Appreciate your time and consideration

Christian

  • Christian: Thank you for taking the time to help Jan. You should consider calling someone in development at Old St. Pat's Church. There may be parishioners willing to help.

    I will spread the word. Thank you

  • That would be great. if anything does come to light please email me. cjsiegel514@gmail.com. Thank you for trying to help!

  • Just heard back from Old St. Pat's. They are going to check around to see if they have some leads. No promises, but they have a good network.
