We invest in our people, and in our community.
Brown & Joseph takes pride in giving back to our communities. We are pleased to announce the formation of a charity committee called H.A.N.D.S., which stands for Helping A Neighbor Discover Success.
Our employee-led charity committee organizes various fundraisers and volunteer opportunities for Brown & Joseph employees and their families.
Brown & Joseph is proud to announce it has formed an employee-led community outreach committee to support the communities in which we operate.
The mission of the committee is to strategically invest time, money and resources in local nonprofit organizations that need them most. The team meets on a monthly basis to coordinate volunteering and fundraising efforts in Indianapolis and the Chicagoland area.
This initiative is built upon Brown & Joseph’s core values of honesty, integrity, innovation, productivity, positivity, accountability, and mutual respect.
Feeding Itasca Food Drive
JUNE 2019 -- For our very first act of service as a committee, Brown & Joseph partnered with the Itasca Food Pantry to host a canned food drive for the entire month of June.
Brown & Joseph made it a goal to collect at least 500 donated items by the end of June, plus any amount of monetary donations.
By the end of the month, we were able to collect 570 food donations and $230 to buy more food donations.
With the help of Hamilton Partners, we crushed our goal and donated over 800 items to the Itasca Food Pantry!
Phil's Friends Volunteer Day
SEPTEMBER 2019 -- Volunteers from Brown & Joseph attended an event at Phil's Friends, a nonprofit organization located in Roselle, IL, that provides consistent support to over 14,000 cancer patients across the U.S.
