Chuhak & Tecson employees look forward to volunteering for Misericordia Candy Days a second time
Chuhak & Tecson employees are back to “shake their cans” in the name of community service.
For the second year in a row, attorneys and staff are volunteering their time and efforts to raise money for Misericordia, a charitable organization that provides a community of support and care for children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities.
On April 26, 20 of the firm’s employees will participate in the 28th Annual Misericordia Candy Days, a fundraiser held throughout the Chicagoland area. Attorneys and staff members will stand side by side with more than 7,500 other volunteers to shake collection cans and distribute candy in return for monetary contributions.
Last year, Chuhak & Tecson volunteers helped raise over $2,000 for Misericordia’s various therapeutic, vocational and residential programs, and hope to top that during this year’s fundraising event.
Misericordia currently serves more than 600 individuals at its 31-acre campus located in the Rogers Park area of Chicago. The organization provides a wide range of programs to meet residents’ diverse needs, including day-to-day support, physical and speech therapy and job training. Misericordia aspires for each individual to live as independently as possible in the highest level of community integration. Learn more about Misericordia at http://www.misericordia.com/.
