With the generous corporate support of Conversant and Epsilon, this was the third year in a row that an energetic and enthusiastic group of Conversant employees participated in Chicago’s largest day of community service with Chicago Cares. On Saturday, June 27 the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon mobilized nearly 5,000 volunteers throughout the Chicagoland area to make an impact in communities with beautification projects in schools, parks and senior centers.
The Conversant/Epsilon team of 35+ volunteers and leaders descended upon Corkery Elementary in Little Village to paint four extremely long hallways in a 100-year old Chicago Public School. While on site, volunteers assembled a domino mosaic of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s face, hand-sewed chair back pockets, and created white boards that were donated to the Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.
Conversant is proud to cultivate a culture that acknowledges and rewards volunteer work in the community as well as everyday good corporate social responsibility. The social committee in Chicago is committed to bringing more visibility into charitable opportunities and additional volunteer projects in the coming months.
