Chuhak & Tecson employees don denim to fight homelessness
Chuhak & Tecson will hold a Jeans Day August 24 to raise money for Bridge Communities, a not for profit committed to ending homelessness in DuPage County.
On Jeans Days, employees who contribute at least $5 to a selected not for profit organization can wear denim to the office. The firm aims to raise $840 for Bridge Communities, which will provide one month of housing for one family.
For the 45,000 people living in poverty within DuPage County, the risk of homelessness is high. Bridge Communities provides services to help break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness. Transitional housing units, located in seven communities throughout DuPage County, give families a place to live for a year or two, which provides them with peace of mind and allows them to accomplish other goals, such as finding a job. Visit www.bridgecommunities.org to learn more about their programs and transitional housing.
Jeans Day will serve as the 17th event in Chuhak & Tecson’s 25 Ways to Give Back service initiative. In honor of our clients and our silver anniversary, the firm is participating in 25 community service events throughout the year. Projects include everything from volunteering at senior centers, to preparing a meal at Ronald McDonald House, to a backpack collection for underprivileged youth.
