For Fostering a Spirit of Giving -Go Into the Community.

Writing a check to your favorite charity is a great start to serving others. In fact, I regularly donate to a variety of nonprofits. Yet giving back in a more hands-on way creates such a tangible, rewarding experience that I can’t say enough about the process.

Each year Jelmar donates to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago's food bank.
