For the second consecutive year, HSA partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository during the holiday season to help in the fight against hunger by launching a food drive at some of its managed facilities as well as online.
After setting up collection stations at PrimeCare’s medical office buildings throughout the Chicagoland suburbs and at HSA’s Willis Tower office, HSA’s employees and building tenants generously donated 510 pounds of non-perishable food items in the month of December that will provide 383 meals to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
In addition to the canned foods collected, HSA launched a virtual drive to provide funds for the Food Depository so they can purchase food in bulk quantities, at prices well below the market rate. Through tremendous donations by HSA team members and friends of the company, HSA was able to raise $1,149 to benefit the Food Depository’s efforts. Due to the efficiency and buying power of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, that will provide approximately 3,447 meals to families across Chicago.
Through HSAwareness, employees of the company have also visited the Food Depository headquarters twice in the past year to assist in the sorting and repackaging of donated foods. The Greater Chicago Food Depository distributes donated and purchased food through a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to 678,000 adults and children in Cook County every year.
The team at HSAwarness would like to sincerely thank everyone who contributed to our food drive, and we look forward to working with all of our friends and colleagues to continue to make a difference in the lives of others through our future endeavors.
