Chuhak & Tecson dedicates a weekday afternoon to Greater Chicago Food Depository
The employees of Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. are gearing up to help feed some of the 678,000 Cook County residents served by Greater Chicago Food Depository every year.
Chuhak & Tecson will do a soft close of its office the afternoon of Wednesday, February 22 so firm employees can volunteer at the Food Depository. About 75 employees will spend the afternoon packing food at the Food Depository’s facility on the southwest side of Chicago. Half of the employees will remain at the firm to address client needs.
“We’re so thankful that Chuhak and Tecson has chosen to celebrate its anniversary by volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository,” said Kate Maehr, executive director and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. “Volunteer support is especially important as we continue to see a high level of need in the community.”
The Food Depository day constitutes the third and largest project in Chuhak & Tecson’s “25 Ways to Give Back” program. In celebration of its silver anniversary, the firm has launched a yearlong community service initiative in which firm employees participate in 25 projects assisting those in need. Chuhak & Tecson is encouraging the greater Chicago community to join its efforts in making 2012 a year of service.
Principal Daniel Fumagalli serves on Chuhak & Tecson’s 25th anniversary committee and feels the Food Depository is a very appropriate partner for the firm’s yearlong community service initiative.
“Chuhak & Tecson is a homegrown firm that has always had a special connection with Chicago,” Fumagalli said. “Our ‘25 Ways to Give Back’ theme very much represents our firm’s can-do spirit, and our day at the Food Depository is a fitting way for us to give back to a city that has been our home for so long.”
Greater Chicago Food Depository distributes food to 678,000 people every year through a network of 650 food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens. In addition to feeding the hungry, the Food Depository conducts training programs aimed at helping individuals and families break their cycles of poverty.
