Chuhak & Tecson launches food collection for Lakeview Pantry
From July 23 to July 31, Chuhak & Tecson , P.C. will collect non-perishable food items for Lakeview Pantry as the next project in its “25 Ways to Give Back” program. The firm will donate all collected items toward the pantry, which strives to eliminate hunger throughout the Chicagoland community.
Lakeview Pantry provides on-site food distribution, food delivery service to homebound clients, donated clothing giveaways and a case management program to help clients address issues that frequently cause food insecurity, such as unemployment and housing instability.
The food drive serves as the fifteenth activity in Chuhak & Tecson’s yearlong community service initiative. In celebration of its 25th anniversary and in honor of its clients, firm employees are participating in 25 service projects assisting those in need. Projects include everything from serving meals to the homeless, to volunteering at senior centers, to providing backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need.
