200 Children at Pederson-McCormick Boys & Girls Club Receive Kits

Uptown Club A Beacon of Hope In Challenging Community

The holidays can be tough for many but in particular children that come from low-income families and often aren’t able to get much in the way of presents. So, it was particularly rewarding to brighten the Christmas season for 200 youth that attend programs and use the facilities at the Pederson-McCormick Boys & Girls Club located on Sheridan Rd. just north of Lawrence.

 We had a wonderful time handing out Back 2 School kits and taking a tour of this amazing community institution that offers children dozens of activities from swimming and music lessons to ceramics classes and tutoring. We are proud to work with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago and plan to expand our partnership in 2015.
