Thank You Liberty Mutual!

Even as this is being written, our generous volunteers from Liberty Mutual offices all over the Chicago area are packing boxes for our August distribution of our Feed the Kids Project. Since 8 a.m. on this rainy Thursday, 15 volunteers packed a month’s worth of boxes of much needed non-perishable foods that go out to the 100 needy families served by the Feed the Kids Project. Each family receives three of these boxes of non-perishables, in addition to fresh produce, bread, and meat, totaling an average of 175 pounds of food for each family when distribution day rolls around.

The Liberty Mutual group committed to a day of community service as a part of their Serve With Liberty program, which was founded as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the insurance company. Additionally, another group of volunteers from Liberty Mutual will be helping with the Feed the Kids Project all day tomorrow. The Serve With Liberty program does not only include the Chicago offices, but is a company-wide program, which consists of approximately 25,000 people in 19 countries working on a total of 1600 projects with 760 charities all across the globe. Employees from a variety of departments within the Chicago offices, including loss control, marketing/sales, surety sales, claims, and underwriting, were given the option of participating at HSP either today or tomorrow as a part of the service program. The Chicago area Liberty Mutual offices picked HSP as their community service location because it seemed like a great opportunity to really give back to the community. The volunteers eagerly put their efforts into action by quickly and enthusiastically jumping into the packing process, with the philosophy that since we are all responsible for one another, it is necessary to give back to each other.

We would like to thank Liberty Mutual and Elaine Cerny, who coordinated the event for the Serve With Liberty Program. Liberty Mutual’s volunteer efforts will greatly help the families served by the Feed the Kids Project. The Feed the Kids Project is conducted each summer and serves as a way to ensure that children in poverty who receive free or reduced lunches during the school year continue to receive nutritious food during the summer vacation. If you would also like to assist in helping us serve these families, please call us at 630-221-8340 or email us at
