Chuhak & Tecson employees promote dignity through community service projects
Legal Assistant Tracy Bulow volunteered at Plymouth Place Retirement Community with other Chuhak & Tecson employees on June 9. The activity served as one of Chuhak & Tecson's "25 Ways of Giving Back," a yearlong community service initiative celebrating the firm's 25th anniversary.
The month of June marked the halfway point in Chuhak & Tecson, P.C.’s yearlong community service initiative, “25 Ways to Give Back.” Chuhak & Tecson employees and their families volunteered at several area organizations committed to improving the quality of life for individuals.

Event Partner: Grace House
Chuhak & Tecson employees participated in the Alliance for Women Everywhere’s 13th annual day of service on June 22. The firm was assigned to Grace House, an organization that provides interim housing for women exiting the Illinois prison system. Chuhak & Tecson attorneys and staff painted the interior of Grace House and planted flowers along the path leading to the house to welcome residents as they embark on new beginnings.
Grace House provides interim housing, emotional support and professional counseling to women leaving the Illinois prison system. The women elect to stay at Grace House voluntarily and work with staff and volunteers to become more empowered to lead lives with dignity.

Event Partner: My Brother’s Kitchen
Chuhak & Tecson held a bake sale and an ice cream social in June to raise funds for My Brother’s Kitchen, a family-run organization that serves meals to the less fortunate. Between the two events, Chuhak & Tecson employees donated $925 to the organization. That amount enables My Brother’s Kitchen to serve patrons for a month.
Located in Chicago, My Brother’s Kitchen was founded by brothers Frank and Pete Vito. Since its founding in 2003, both brothers have passed away, but it is still run today by their family members. To learn more about volunteering at My Brother’s Kitchen, visit My Brother's Kitchen.
