The HSAwareness holiday tradition continues! Once again this year, our team loaded up the sleigh and helped deliver tons of toys, clothing, learning tools, and a little holiday cheer to local families at the Paulo Freire Family Center in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Every holiday season, our friends at Chicago Commons gather wishlists for the school’s students and their families, and our HSAwareness elves–led by senior vice president Josephine Thomas-Hoytt–busy themselves with making their holidays merry and bright by assembling a bag of goodies for each family. This year, donations from HSA team members helped support 43 parents and children in 10 local families and provide them with toys, winter clothes, and even a few Chromebooks for homework!

We are grateful to all of the HSA team members that contributed to this year’s toy drive and to Chicago Commons for all of the wonderful work that they do to deliver high quality early childhood education, family-centered adult education, and senior services in our community. HSA Commercial CEO Bob Smietana is a long-time board member at Chicago Commons.

Happy Holidays from HSA Commercial Real Estate!
