33 Realty donates 215 Pounds of Food to Local Pantry

By 33 on December 4, 2018

With a company dollar match, 33 was able to help 55 families in North Side Chicago.

During the month of November, 33 Realty and Cubed Construction employees as well as residents from communities managed by 33 Management collected over 215 pounds of non-perishable goods to restock the shelves at Lakeview Pantry.

As part of the food drive, 33 Realty pledged to match employee and resident contributions – $33 for every 10 lbs of food collected. For every dollar donated to Lakeview Pantry, the organization is able to purchase approximately 10 pounds of food.

With a total of 215 pounds donated and a $710 cash donation, Lakeview Pantry will be able to provide a two-week supply of food for approximately 55 families in Chicago’s North Side.*

“Giving time, money and effort to our community is very important for all at 33 and we are excited to continue increasing our efforts around philanthropy moving forward,” stated Drew Millard the company’s founding principal.

Lakeview Pantry is one of Chicago’s largest and longest-operating food pantries. According to their website, 1 in 9 people on the North Side of Chicago suffers from food insecurity, meaning they lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.
