McGladrey Participates in Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon

At McGladrey, lending our helping hand to the community is one of our top priorities. Recently, the 20th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon took place, an event in which McGladrey employees, friends, and families participate in each year. This event is the largest single day of community service in Chicago, and it was kicked off in the heart of downtown with an inspiring welcome speech by Chelsea Clinton.

Following the morning welcome ceremony, McGladrey volunteers headed to a low-income school for children Pre-K through eighth grade. Once at our volunteer site, we were split into different projects which included mural painting, hallway painting, and outdoor landscaping. Although no skills were required for any of these jobs, our employees did an excellent job of making each and every corner of the school look professional! 

Here at McGladrey, we are proud to make a difference. From the East Coast to the West Coast, we are always looking for opportunities to positively impact our local societies. We have always promoted, and will continue to promote, volunteer projects that transform local neighborhoods and improve the well-being for our fellow neighbors and underserved communities. Although we have just celebrated the success of this community service event, we are already looking forward to the next opportunity to show our commitment to others!
