The day after our Kickoff Dinner the Irving Park YMCA served as the site for a day of kit building with volunteers from Deloitte. B2SI Board Member and Deloitte employee, Michael Kracjer, helped organize this “Build A Kit” event for a second year in a row but this time expanding on both the number of volunteers and the number of kits assembled. This year 50 volunteers helped assemble 2,400 kits. Not even the 90-degree weather was enough to slow down the assembly line of kits. The kits from this event will be distributed to several area YMCA’s as well as Operation Homefront, which serves military families throughout the state.
Our “Build A Kit” program gives companies the opportunity to fundraise for a cause near and dear to their community. This event is a great way for coworkers to bond while giving back. Just look at all the people it brought together:
