Corporate Volunteer Projects

Our friends from West Monroe Partners were at Harbor Light recently and helped us "Do The Most Good". The team made 29 fleece-tie blankets which will go out as part of our homeless outreach program. They also helped out in the kitchen, serving lunch to the residents and making sandwiches and fruit cups for homeless outreach. It was a great job by all and the staff at Harbor Light extends their thanks to everyone who contributed their time and talent that day.

Thanks to our friends from Blue Cross Blue Shield who volunteered at Harbor Light in February. They provided help in the kitchen by making sandwiches, bagged lunches and fruit cups along with serving in the lunch line. The kitchen staff appreciated all their help and even shared a tasty cole slaw recipe. At the end of their shift, BCBS volunteers asked the kitchen staff to join them in the picture.  Thanks to everyone from Blue Cross Blue Shield who took the time to show how much they care!  

Thanks to our friends from Deloitte who came out to Chicago Temple Corps Community Center last week. They painted our kettles and kettle stands and replaced holiday signs, ensuring that everything is ready to go for our upcoming kettle season. Thanks to everyone from Deloitte who participated in this fun volunteer event!
