S&C Electric Company Donates $493,500 to Local Chicago Charities
S&C’s Annual Giving Campaign Contributes to Misericordia, United Way, and Community Health Charities
Chicago, July 18, 2018 – S&C Electric Company is proudly donating $493,500 to three local organizations through the company’s Annual Giving Campaign. Funded by S&C team member contributions and a 150% company match, this year’s campaign was the most successful in S&C’s history and will support Community Health Charities, Misericordia, and United Way of Metro Chicago.
These three organizations’ dedicated programs provide the local Chicago community with services spanning from health care to personal development and educational support. Misericordia, home to children and adults with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities, will use S&C’s donation for resident job training, therapies, medical care, and social activities. Funding provided to United Way of Metro Chicago will help tackle local challenges, such as improving graduation rates, and Community Health Charities will invest S&C’s donation toward a variety of local programs.
“We’re extremely grateful for S&C’s support of our mission,” said Thomas G. Bognanno, president and CEO, Community Health Charities. “Together with partners, we’re finding cures to save children with cancer, supporting our military veterans and first responders, and working to end bullying and human trafficking, which are difficult challenges. With S&C’s help, we’re one step closer to reaching these important goals in Chicago and across the country.”
S&C’s Annual Giving Campaign stems from one of the company’s core values of responsible stewardship and its long-term commitment to the local Chicago community. The campaign ran for one month and is organized entirely by S&C team members.
“Operating out of our large manufacturing facility in the heart of Rogers Park, we constantly strive to be a good neighbor,” said Kyle Seymour, president and CEO, S&C Electric Company. “This campaign not only demonstrates how much our team members truly care about giving back, but it continues to strengthen this dynamic and diverse city we are so happy to call home.”
A formal check presentation will be held at S&C Electric Company’s offices located at 6601 N. Ridge Blvd, Chicago on Wednesday, July 18, at 11 a.m. CDT. Media are welcome to attend.
