In September, managing broker Bill White from our Glen Ellyn office had the opportunity to surprise one of our $24K of Solid Good winners, Bridge Communities, with a $24,000 grant. Bridge Communities transitions homeless families to self-sufficiency by working with partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services.
Each year, Baird & Warner’s Good Will Network donates thousands of dollars to housing-related nonprofits throughout Chicagoland. One of these giving campaigns is our $24K of Solid Good, where agents and employees nominate dozens of nonprofits to $24,000 grants. After a round of public voting, we have five winners to each receive a grant.
Our team was so inspired by the people who work so hard to fight homelessness in our communities in all different kinds of ways. We are so grateful to work in a place where making a difference is an essential part of who we are as a company. For us, Chicagoland is home.
