Cantigny Employees Give Us Their Time

You might have noticed in this morning’s post that we mentioned there were two volunteers here from Cantigny who helped Pete and Mike load the van with furniture to deliver to some seniors. Well now we’d like to tell you about those two volunteers, Wayne Wozniak and John Hartness.

Cantigny, which is part of the McCormick Foundation, encourages all employees to spend 4 days each year doing a service project for another charitable organization at the McCormick Foundation’s expense! Being a charitable, nonprofit organization itself, Cantigny gives to many causes each year, but through this program they allow their employees to choose which organizations they want to give back to with their 4 days of service.

Wayne and John work in security and guest services for Cantigny. They have both been here before, so this isn’t the first time they’ve blessed us with their time and Cantigny’s generous donation, and we’re so grateful. When asked why they like coming to HSP Wayne explained that Cantigny gives its employees a booklet with different charitable organizations and what they each do. When he read about the Children’s Birthday Project, he knew he wanted to come check out HSP. Wayne loves children, and loves that HSP does too. John decided to come along, and he’s enjoyed coming back ever since his first visit. He agrees that the Children’s Birthday Project is a great program, and he enjoyed helping at Christmas tim
e. We’re so thankful for the support of Cantigny, Wayne, and John. Thank you for all your support!
