Volunteers of America of Illinois – Operation Backpack

September 14, 2016

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.
