The USA is the biggest charity fundraising country per-capita in the world. Most sections of our society have reason to be thankful for what we have. At Credico USA, we also recognize that we have to put something back into society. “It is part of our corporate culture to give our time and raise money for good causes,” said Founder of Credico, Antoine Nohra.
This June 15, team Credico USA will be volunteering their time to help those less fortunate. “There was no shortage of volunteers wanting to give up their leisure time,” said Jean Broaddus, Director of Client Relations at Credico USA.
As a part of the Chicago Cares serve-a-thon which kicks off at Daley Plaza, the Credico USA team has committed to spending their Saturday helping Chicago Public Schools in impoverished areas. They will be assisting in classroom renovations, painting, landscaping parks and playgrounds, restoring libraries, building and cleaning to help make elementary schools across the City of Chicago a better, more welcoming place when the kids return to school in August.
This is the 20th annual event which over the years has grown immensely and is now the largest single day of community service in Chicago where volunteers come together to meet some of Chicago’s most challenging needs.
“We are all proud of our city and take comfort from the commitment and generosity of spirit that Chicago Cares engenders in us,” said Nohra.
As well as volunteering their services, Credico has also committed to raising $2,500 to go toward school supplies and textbooks. “This is something we wish to continue with on an annual basis,” remarked Nohra.
