Volunteers of America of Illinois – Operation Backpack

For the fifth year in a row Chuhak & Tecson employees participated in Operation Backpack, bringing in nearly $800 in backpacks and school supplies for the 2016 school year.

Operation Backpack is an annual event sponsored by Volunteers of America, a not for profit organization that focuses on empowering people of all ages and backgrounds while providing community based human service programs. Operation Backpack collects a wide range of supplies that schoolchildren require in order to start off their new school year right---from pencils to calculators and from art supplies to the backpacks themselves. Items are then distributed to children in foster care throughout Chicagoland.

Today our firm received this lovely thank-you card from some of the children—all so special and all so deserving—that we want to share this with you, the visitors to our site.
