Keeping it local in Chicago

To honor our KeHE Core Purpose, We Serve to Make Lives Better, our Naperville office launched the KEEPING IT LOCAL CONTRIBUTION DRIVE. As our local Greater Chicago area, KeHE Cares partners field higher than ever volume and need for care due to COVID-19, they are in desperate need of necessities. On Friday, May 29th, the Naperville office parking lot transformed into a drop off location to collect donations from our Naperville and Romeoville employees to support three local KeHE Cares Partners.

Sarah’s Inn was founded in 1980 by a group of concerned women in River Forest and Oak Park, Illinois to address the lack of services for battered women and their families. Their mission is to improve the lives of those affected by domestic violence and to break the cycle of violence for future generations. Sarah’s Inn believes in hopeful futures for survivors of domestic violence through the strength that comes from a networked and supportive, relational community.

As a result of the generous donations, we were able to collect food, personal hygiene items, diapers, and gift cards for those in need.
