We are proud to congratulate our partner, Mesirow Financial, on their Community Impact award from Chicago Charity Challenge for their partnership with the Brighton Park Neighborhood Council through United Way of Metropolitan Chicago’s Neighborhood Network Initiative.
The Community Impact Award rewards a team for serving a low- to moderate-income geographic community and making a substantial difference to its residents. Improvements may relate to economic development, education, housing, health, or human services.
Mesirow employees logged 2,271 volunteer hours with a wide range of charity partners. More than 740 of those hours were spent in the Brighton Park neighborhood, while donating school supplies to 500 students, sponsoring an art contest for 150 middle schoolers, enabling 100 youth to experience live theater, providing Thanksgiving meals for 45 families and leading a field day for 250 campers. But best of all, through these activities their employees developed deep, impactful relationships with the students and residents of the Brighton Park community.
Congratulations, Mesirow, and thank you for your dedication to Brighton Park and our Neighborhood Network strategy!
