Chuhak & Tecson to serve up meals at JUF Uptown Café
Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. is dishing up another volunteer project as part of its “25 Way to Give Back” program by partnering with the Jewish United Fund Uptown Café, Chicago’s first kosher anti-hunger program for the needy.
On March 8, about a dozen Chuhak & Tecson employees will volunteer at the Uptown Café, located on the North Side of Chicago. Uptown Café offers guests a restaurant-style atmosphere where volunteers serve patrons a hot meal and provide friendly conversation.
Chuhak & Tecson Principal Mitchell Feinberg, who has been involved with JUF for many years, thought the Uptown Café fit perfectly with the firm’s “25 Ways to Give Back” silver anniversary program.
“I brought my wife and two kids to my first volunteer experience at the Uptown Café,” Feinberg said. “My kids were too young to serve food, so instead they ran back and forth getting milk and water for people. They enjoyed themselves, and it was great for them to be involved in a program that offers such a unique and dignified atmosphere.”
The JUF Uptown Café serves as the fifth activity in Chuhak & Tecson’s yearlong community service initiative. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, firm employees are participating in 25 service projects assisting those in need. Projects include everything from sponsoring shoe and clothing drives to making blankets for soldiers stationed overseas. Visit 25 Ways We're Giving Back for ongoing updates.
More than 8,500 volunteers have served 140,000 meals since the JUF Uptown Café opened its doors in 1998. The Uptown Café is open three days a week for dinner and on Sundays for brunch. Learn more about JUF Uptown Café.
