Firm employees participate in two September service events
Chuhak & Tecson’s yearlong community service initiative continued with two events in September.
Event Partner: Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation
On September 14, Chuhak & Tecson attorneys, staff and their families participated in the 19th Race Judicata, benefitting Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation. The 5k walk/run supports the Foundation’s mission of providing free legal services to low-income Chicago residents.
Founded in 1964, CVLS has provided pro bono legal services to more than 18,000 Chicagoans. The organization is comprised of nearly 3,000 volunteers who donate their time in order to assist people who otherwise would not have access to legal representation. All proceeds from Race Judicata will go toward general operating costs of CVLS. The race is one of several fundraisers sponsored by CVLS each year. For more information, visit cvls.org.
Event Partner: PAWS Chicago
In September, firm employees donated over $500 and more than 30 pet care supplies to PAWS Chicago. Donated items include leashes, dog bowls, cat toys and cleaning supplies.
Located in Lincoln Park, PAWS Chicago finds new homes for thousands of homeless pets each year. Since the organization’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless dogs and cats euthanized annually in the city has dropped more than 50 percent. PAWS provides a number of services in addition to adoptions, including a spay/neuter clinic and community outreach program. For more information, visit paws.org.
