Jelmar Helps Keep Chicago Parks Clean


“For 50 years, we’ve kept the vision of my grandfather alive at Jelmar,” said Alison Gutterman, President and CEO of Jelmar. “We wanted to celebrate our 50-year milestone with all of those who have helped us get to where we are today, including our employees, our customers, and our fans. What better way to do that than to bring people together in Chicago’s Grant Park near the famous Buckingham Fountain?” 

As a part of the celebration, Jelmar made a $10,000 donation to CPF to help support our commitment to keep Chicago’s parks and green spaces clean. 

“We see a natural synergy with Jelmar as a Chicago-based company with a vested interest in keeping our beautiful parks clean and looking their best,” says our own Executive Director, Willa Lang. “Jelmar’s donation to CPF shows its dedication to Chicago and its parks. We wish them a happy 50th anniversary, and many more.”
