Corporate Volunteer Project Spotlight:

Verizon Wireless - Schaumburg

Thank you to Verizon Wireless' Schaumburg Team for their help in making 31 fleece-tie blankets for use in our homeless outreach program. It was a great event with lots of laughter, competition and some great music! Thanks to everyone who participated, with a special thanks to Konstantyn for organizing the event.  


Blue Cross - Blue Shield of Illinois

Thank you to the group from Blue Cross - Blue Shield who volunteered in the kitchen at Harbor Light Center. The group made sandwiches for our homeless outreach program, Reuben sandwiches for dinner and helped serve lunch to our residents. Thanks to everyone who helped make this a great day for staff and residents!
