On Saturday, January 4, 2020, Novack and Macey’s Women’s Initiatives Group volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository to help feed those in need in the Chicagoland area. Members of the firm, family, and friends joined other volunteers to repack food to be distributed to local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. The Women’s Initiatives Group is co-chaired by Rebekah H. Parker and Hannah B. Griffin.
Hannah Griffin said, “Serving our community was a great way to kick off the New Year. Together with all the GCFD volunteers, we repacked over 47,000 pounds of food that will provide over 39,000 meals to those facing food insecurity.”
Rebekah Parker noted, “The Women’s Group was proud to align our event with Novack and Macey’s effort to fight food insecurity in Chicago. No one should ever have to go hungry.”
The firm recently donated $15,000 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository to help support the organization’s mission.
