Monday Morning News: Hesed House Is Making A Difference

Last week, we were privileged to meet with some of the winners of our Make A Difference Day Challenge.

In Aurora, IL, we met with Mary Ensor, Division Director of Resources at the Hesed House and were honored to present her with a check for $1,000.

Hesed House is the largest homeless shelter in Illinois outside the city of Chicago. They do incredible work to not only meet the immediate needs of individuals and families, but also help them get back on their feet with training opportunities. We look forward to working more with Hesed House in the future.
