“Providing local charities with crucial funds to continue the work they do within our community is an important part of our company values,” said Kyle Seymour, president and CEO of S&C Electric Company. “We care about our neighbors and take pride in maintaining strong, supportive relationships within the communities we work. I am proud to present Misericordia, Community Health Charities and United Way with these checks today as they each work toward bettering the lives of Chicagoans in need.”
Representatives of each charity were present to receive the donation, including two Misericordia residents and a Special Olympics athlete from Community Health Charities.

Community Health Charities and United Way received $129,745 and $98,100, respectively.

S&C’s support enables us to continue providing our residents with the best environment possible, which translates to peace of mind for their families and loved ones.”
