Giving Never Looked So Simple


When it comes to giving this holiday season, we’ll make it easy on you: here are five ways to give that fall lockstep with what you’ll already be doing. Read on to learn how you can be a hero to Chicago families in need through Workplace Giving Programs and Amazon Smile, or by making use of your used goods and technology at the Habitat office, Restore, or Cars for Homes.
