Starting on October 1 and extending all the way to Halloween, M.J. Electric encouraged their employees to donate non-perishable items — such as peanut butter, tuna, pasta, canned vegetables, and cereal — to help fight hunger in Chicago. The company donated a grand total of 1,300 pounds of food, which will provide 1,000 meals to people who are facing hunger in the communities they serve.
Nearly 1.4 million people in Illinois are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you to those at M.J. Electric for supporting our mission to fight hunger in Illinois and across the United States.
