Lake Forest Office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago Made 18 Backpacks and 18 Personal Care Bags for Kids in Need Through Fill A Heart 4 Kids During Community Kindness 2022
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago is pleased to announce that agents and staff from the firm's Lake Forest office participated in a Fill A Heart 4 Kids™ event during the firm's company-wide Community Kindness initiative. During Community Kindness agents and staff in the firm's Chicagoland offices select organizations to lend extra support. This year, the Lake Forest office selected Fill A Heart 4 Kids™, an organization that gives unaccompanied homeless youth, at risk, and foster children educational support, necessities and positive experiences to help their hearts heal and restore their dignity so they can achieve brighter futures.
Eighteen agents and staff visited the Fill a Heart 4 Kids shop at 270 Market Square in Lake Forest and each one compiled a backpack with school supplies for elementary students including binders, folders, paper, notecards, a pencil bag, pens, pencils and erasers. They also put together personal care bags for the kids that included body wash, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrush and a toothbrush cover. A hand-written note was attached to each backpack and bag that said, "Have an awesome day!"
Kevin Rynes, sales manager of the Lake Forest office, said, "Fill a Heart 4 Kids does such important work for youth who are in foster care or homeless. Founder Annie McAveeney shared the story of how the organization began and our agents were so touched. They helped 2,500 kids in 2021 and the need in Illinois is profound. Our agents were so happy to help this incredibly worthy organization. I'd like to give a special thank you to Kindness Ambassadors Elizabeth Jakaitis and Donna Mancuso for all of their coordination of the event. They did an amazing job for an amazing organization."
