SPM Raises Over $14,000 for Off The Street Club

It’s not hard to start off 2018 on a good note when the end of 2017 was so spectacular! SPM is proud to share that we capped off this past holiday season by raising a total of $14,364.03 for the boys and girls of Off The Street Club!

Off The Street Club is Chicago’s oldest boys’ and girls’ club, currently serving more than 3,000 kids in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country, West Garfield Park. To ensure every child had the chance to enjoy the holidays, SPM hosted an internal fundraising competition throughout the month of December to raise money for a variety of gifts. With the help of our employees, friends, and family, we were able to raise even more than expected, and the official total announced was announced at our annual winter agency meeting. Our staff then divided and conquered the La Grange area to find the perfect gifts to put under our tree for the kids.

This marks SPM’s largest donation in over ten years of supporting the club. And of course, it didn’t go without celebration. Check out some photos below from our pre-holiday party with the club—and the busload of gifts the kids took home!

Although the holidays are over, it’s never too late to support the club. Donations are accepted year-round and can be found here. For more information on SPM's relationship with Off The Street Club or questions about how to get involved, please reach out to us!
