The holiday season is upon us and it’s in full swing. It’s a busy time for everyone between gatherings, shopping, wrapping, baking, cooking … you name it! No matter how busy each of us might be, however, there is always time for giving.
Advanced Resources had a phenomenal opportunity last week to partner with one of our valued clients, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, to make a difference for five children in the Cabrini Green neighborhood. For over 25 years, Northwestern Memorial has sponsored the Adopt-a-School program, which provides students with back-to-school supplies in August as well as holiday gifts in December. This year, Northwestern once again supported the Jenner Academy of the Arts in Cabrini Green. Thanks to Northwestern Memorial employees and partners (such as Advanced), this year they were able to provide a warm coat, an outfit, and a toy/fun gift for every single child at Jenner.
"Advanced Resources’ mission is to ‘make a difference’ and we could not think of a better way to show this than making a difference for children,” said Rich Diaz, President of Advanced Resources. “Children are our future. Every child deserves the chance to celebrate the holidays, regardless of their family’s economic situation. Northwestern Memorial has a phenomenal reputation for giving back to the Chicagoland community, and we’re glad to have participated in this opportunity to bring a smile to five bright young faces.”
Thank you Northwestern Memorial for giving Advanced the chance to warm the souls of five children this month. We wish everyone a warm and wonderful holiday season!
