On Friday, Oct. 5, Camcraft owner and chairman Bern Bertsche and John Walker, vice president of Human Resources presented Administer Justice's executive director Bruce Strom with a check for $10,000 at the Camcraft facility in Hanover Park. Camcraft is a global leader in manufacturing high-precision machined components for the automotive and off-road vehicle engine markets.
"Camcraft is pleased to join with Administer Justice in serving our community. There is a lot of fear and misinformation today regarding legal issues. We are grateful for the opportunity to inform and educate our employees while supporting the important work of Administer Justice," Bertsche said.
Camcraft operates a 120,000 square foot, climate-controlled manufacturing facility, filled with the most advanced turning and finishing equipment being produced today. The company has been recognized in the Top 101 Places to work in the Chicago area by the National Association of Business Resources.
Administer Justice is a nonprofit organization, providing free civil legal assistance to thousands of low-income area residents through a comprehensive program of educational outreach, legal assistance, government intervention and conflict resolution services. The organization, headquartered in Elgin, served over 6,100 individuals in 2011 with the help of more than 700 volunteers, who donated over 10,000 hours. The organization recently launched "Justice is Everyone's Business," a program whereby businesses partner with Administer Justice in supporting needs within the local community while receiving some unique benefits for their employees.
"Business owners know firsthand how the downturn in the economy has impacted individuals, families and virtually all local industries. Businesses have a unique opportunity to give back and invest in their local community. We are grateful to Camcraft for their generosity and their willingness to help us fulfill our pledge to stand up for vulnerable Americans," Strom said.
