Bensman Employees Provide Books for Kids
Last month, employees of The Bensman Group pitched in to promote reading for at-risk Chicago-area children. The firm hosted a book drive April 1 to 16 to collect books appropriate for young readers. Then, on April 16, about 20 Bensman employees went to Bernie's Book Bank in Lake Forest, Ill., from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to sort, sticker and bag books for the kids.
Bernie's Book Bank helps collect and distribute new and gently used children's books to encourage reading and book ownership among underprivileged children throughout Chicagoland. Since 2009, they have distributed more than 1.3 million books. The Bensman employee event was organized by the firm's Community Outreach team, led by Amy Meyer, Catrina Wickman and Diana Foran.
