  • Ergoseal Holiday Food Drive 2020
    Ergoseal Holiday Food Drive 2020
    Wednesday, December 16, 2020

    We are gearing up for the holiday season, that time of the year when we join our loved ones in celebration and cheer. Unfortunately, the less fortunate may not have the privilege of celebrating like most of us. They may hardly have enough food, or any at all, to share with their loved ones during the holidays. 

    That’s why Ergoseal is proud to support the Interfaith Food Pantry, Inc., located in Glendale Heights, as they work to distribute food to those in our local community facing hunger. We began our food drive before the Thanksgiving holiday and are continuing to collect donations supporting the pantry throughout the winter season. With the holidays nearly upon us, we wanted to extend our warmest wishes to you and those closest to you and remind you that a small donation can make a big difference. If you’re able to help those less fortunate this season, consider donating to your local food pantry to make everyone’s holiday merry and bright.

    For the second year in a row, the Ergoseal team joined forces with the GardenWorks Project to support families facing food insecurity. The GardenWorks Project is a non-profit organization that promotes suburban agriculture to improve the wellbeing of not only the community but also the environment. We spent a beautiful day outdoors in the western suburbs refreshing and planting garden beds. Special thanks to our team members and their families for spending the day with us and supporting other local families in need.

    During the holiday season, one of our favorite things we enjoy doing as a team is volunteering for Feed Our Starving Children, a non-profit on a mission to providing meals to kids across the world. Our team members and their families had a great time coming together to pack nutritional meals at a local MobilePack event. Packed meals were then shipped and delivered to kids in need. We hope to participate again next year!

    We began recycling in our office in August 2018 to ensure Ergoseal is doing its part to reduce waste and protect the natural environment.

    This May, the Ergoseal team and their family members fought hunger from the ground up with the GardenWorks Project, which promotes suburban agriculture to improve the wellbeing of communities and the environment, and support families facing food insecurity. We refreshed old and planted new garden beds for a Glen Ellyn apartment complex that houses families in transition, often who are single parents. Working alongside these families, we had a wonderful time developing suburban agriculture and contributing to our local community.
