Chuhak & Tecson employees volunteer for Misericordia Candy Days
Chuhak & Tecson employees are “shaking their cans” for the firm’s next community service project.
As part of its “25 Ways to Give Back” program, attorneys and staff are volunteering to raise money for Misericordia, a charitable organization that provides supportive services to children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities.
On April 27, over 20 of the firm’s employees will donate their time to Misericordia Candy Days, a fundraiser where volunteers work the streets of Chicago, shake collection cans and pass out candy in exchange for monetary donations. Chuhak & Tecson employees will join the more than 12,000 volunteers that will take part in this year’s Misericordia Candy Days.
The Misericordia Candy Days fundraiser serves as the ninth activity in the firm’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 sponsoring clothing drives, to providing backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need. Visit 25 Ways We're Giving Back for ongoing updates.
