Chuhak & Tecson to hold penny war for Elim Christian School

March 14, 2012

Chuhak & Tecson is going to war. Penny war, that is.

As part of its “25 Ways to Give Back” program, Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. is holding a penny war  from March 19 to March 31 to raise money for Elim Christian School, an educational program that provides services to students with developmental and physical disabilities.

Chuhak & Tecson employees will be divided into two teams for the penny war. To build on the friendly competition generated from the firm’s afternoon volunteering at Greater Chicago Food Depository, Teams Sausage and Pasta will go head-to-head in the penny war. Each team will have a change collection jar in which team members can contribute loose coins of all denominations, while members from the other team can contribute paper money. All of the coins in each jar “count” for that team, and all paper money counts against that team. At the end of the contest, the team with the most net change will win the war.

Money collected during the penny war will be used to provide Elim Christian School with assistive technology. Chuhak & Tecson’s goal is to donate $1,000 to the school.

The penny war serves as the sixth activity in Chuhak & Tecson’s yearlong community service initiative. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, firm employees are participating in 25 service projects assisting those in need. Projects include everything from serving meals to the homeless, to sponsoring clothing drives, to providing backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need.
