We were surprised to learn that as many as 1 in 6 residents of Cook County residents turn to the Greater Chicago Food Depository each year. So, when there was an opportunity for our Chicago EquiTrust Cares group to volunteer, it was something we wanted to do.
EquiTrust encourages every employee to make a difference in their communities through volunteerism, and supports those efforts with matches for charitable donations and a paid volunteer day each year.
It’s a great feeling, knowing we helped chip away at hunger in Chicago. And of course, it’s more fun doing it together.
