- Children in St Charles just outside of Chicago
Grant Thornton sponsored a truly inspiring event for children in the St Charles area just outside of Chicago.
Many children in this area return to school without even the basic school supplies. Grant Thornton sponsored our Backpack Builders program for their senior leaders and gave away over 100 backpacks full of the specific school supplies each child needed. The backpacks had each child’s name, and their actual school list for the grade and school they would be attending. We also embroidered the Grant Thornton logo into the backpacks … a very nice touch. An amazing event that both entertained hundreds of leaders, but also made a major impact on over 100 children!
