“We strive to be a good member of each and every community we serve. Over the years, we have partnered with local, national and international organizations in order to lend a helping hand to those in need.

Support of our local communities occurs in many ways; including participation in local parades, fund raising for charitable organizations and support of educational programs such as fire safety education, providing college scholarships and founding and funding Illinois’ largest Back 2 School program.

In 2014 alone, the Back 2 School program distributed 850,000 school supplies to more than 28,000 underprivileged children. As a result of the tremendous success of the program, we set up a nonprofit, Back 2 School Illinois, which now is runs this year-round effort to help improve the educational opportunities for Illinois children.”
