Early on a recent summer morning, a WarmlyYours crew of 11 assembled in Joliet, IL to help in the setup of a new social home for young women and their kids. Hundreds of pieces of heavy furniture, beds and mattresses had to be moved into the residence and HomeAid Chicago counted on a team of volunteers to make it happen. At the end of an exhausting but very productive day, nearly 50 bedrooms were fully equipped and ready for everyone to move in!
Over the past few months, our warehouse manager, Maciek, has also assisted HomeAid on several construction projects. From installing shower rods in Joliet, Maciek has leant his trade skills in handling heavy tools to help remodel several shelters for the homeless, children beaten by their parents and sexually abused girls.
Congratulations to Maciek and the courageous WarmlyYours employees who made it all happen. Our sincere thanks to HomeAid for rewarding our efforts with this award!
It has been WarmlyYours' policy for many years now to let employees take days off to work for local non-profit companies. I'm very proud to see the WarmlyYours team take this policy to heart and make a difference by helping those of us that are less fortunate.
