Chicago Legal Clinic benefits from Chuhak & Tecson Jeans Day

February 6, 2012

Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. kicked off its “25 Ways to Give Back” program in January with a Jeans Day to benefit Chicago Legal Clinic.

On Jeans Days, employees who contribute to a selected not-for-profit organization can wear denim to the office. Collectively, firm employees donated $640 to CLC, which provides legal services to the working poor and disadvantaged. A Chuhak & Tecson principal matched the contributions, resulting in a $1,280 total donation to CLC.

After learning of Chuhak & Tecson’s contribution, Edward Grossman, executive director of CLC, contacted the organization’s board members asking them to consider similar fundraising activities at their own companies. This ripple effect supports Chuhak & Tecson’s 25th anniversary mission to inspire others in making 2012 a year of community service.

In celebration of its silver anniversary, Chuhak & Tecson employees are participating in 25 service projects assisting those in need. Projects include everything from serving meals to the homeless, to sponsoring shoe and clothing drives, to making blankets for soldiers stationed overseas.
