What We Did
We continued our approach to charitable giving in 2015 by focusing our efforts on two programs in particular – Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Chicago’s Community Kitchens (CCK). Several students from Cristo Rey participated in our work study program, gaining real-life on the job training while working part-time at LP. In addition, we went to great lengths this year to get the word out about Chicago’s Community Kitchens. Our annual holiday card not only grabbed the attention of the press, it resulted in real donations to CCK from our clients. We could not be more proud.
How This Impacts Our Community
LP has always been committed to charitable giving. But instead of using a blanket approach and donating a little to several different charities, we’ve always had focus. We believe that by targeting our giving to a few select charities, we will make a greater, more tangible impact. Our partnership with both organizations will continue in 2016.
