Giving Back to the Community Committee News: Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry – Helping those in need since 1957
115 S LaSalle Street, Suite 3100
Chicago, IL 60603
Carol A. Cesaretti, Managing Partner of the Chicago office, announced the office will be donating money to the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry, Aurora, Illinois throughout the holidays.
The Founder of the Giving Back to the Community Committee, Ms. Cesaretti, says “We have been a very positive force and have been able to bring some joy and smiles to people who are dealing with extreme situations.” Our office has donated:
- Approximately one dozen I-Pads to area hospitals in need to allow loves ones to see their families.
- Partnered with a minority/women owned Veteran-based company that distributes PPE such as masks
- Delivered over 500 personalized cards and over 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to COVID patients and
health care workers in Chicago’s hardest hit hospitals.
Our focus now is in helping the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry. The Giving Back to our Community
Committee contacted the Food Pantry director and learned that although non-perishable food donations
are always welcome, what they need is cash donations since they can purchase $8.00 worth of food from the
food bank per every dollar donated.
