Holidays, hard times and charitable giving

Holiday card
Innovative Energy purchased holiday cards from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, with proceeds benefitting the charity.

By now, people have returned to work from their holiday breaks, but many are probably still reflecting on what the holiday season brought them – family time, gifts or some much needed time out of the office. If you are one of the companies that we at Innovative Energy have had the pleasure of working with over the last year, hopefully you’re reflecting on the gift you received from us.

No, it wasn’t the traditional assortment of chocolates or food. This year, in the spirit of giving, Innovative Energy made a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana in honor of our valued clients. Some clients also received holiday cards from us that were purchased through the organization as well.

The four Ronald McDonald Houses in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region provide countless families a “home away from home” in the event that their child needs to undergo medical treatment at a facility far from home. The charity provides this service at little or no cost to the family. A fifth house, set to open in Chicago later this year, will be the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world. Now Innovative Energy and our valued clients will have played a part in the building of this wonderful new facility that will truly help families in need.

In December, all of us at Innovative Energy came together to raise more than $600 for a local family in need through a silent auction and personal donations. The funds were used to buy clothing and winter gear for the children as well as a gift card to help the family purchase groceries. We plan to continue with similar charitable activities around the holiday for years to come, and we sincerely hope our generosity is contagious.
