Community service initiative continues with two August events
September 6, 2012
With summer winding down, employees at Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. completed two service events in the month of August.
Event Partner: Ronald McDonald House
As the 16th event in the firm’s “25 Ways to Give Back” service initiative, Chuhak & Tecson employees and their families provided and prepared a meal at Ronald McDonald House, located in downtown Chicago. About 15 volunteers prepared and served a full taco bar to 100 people currently staying at Ronald McDonald House while their children undergo medical treatment nearby at Lurie Children’s Hospital.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana provide a home away from home for families of pediatric patients. These houses allow families to stay together just blocks from the hospital where their child is being treated. To learn more, please visit http://rmhccni.org/.
Event Partner: Bridge Communities
On August 24, Chuhak & Tecson held a Jeans Day to benefit Bridge Communities. On Jeans Days, employees who donate at least $5 earn the right to wear jeans to the office. Collectively, the firm met its goal of raising $840, which will provide one month of housing for one family served by Bridge Communities.
Bridge Communities provides services to help break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness. Transitional housing units, located in seven communities throughout DuPage County, give families a place to live for a year or two, which provides them with peace of mind and allows them to accomplish other goals, such as finding a job.
