Our community relationships are important to us. We understand that what we give and do now will affect our future. HBK is actively involved in various organizations that drive health, education, and safety. Our charitable contributions support communities across the nation. HBK proudly supports March of Dimes, Chicago Commons, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, and many others.
Through the Kids Above All Holiday Gift Drive, generous individuals, as well as community, corporate and faith partners came together to provide holiday gifts for the children, youth and young adults in the program. Our women’s resource group, Strive, volunteers pitched in to act as Santa’s helpers in the Toy Room by matching gift donations to requests made by the many Kids Above All participants. With their efforts, the holidays will be more enjoyable for those who might not receive gifts otherwise.
HBK Graduate Engineer Anthony D’Angelo led two Chicago Public Schools classes in MSI Jr. Science Cafes. Anthony shared information about his background, engineering overall, and his day-to-day responsibilities. Students asked questions about the job and what they should study in order to become engineers.
We were happy to return to the in-person annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago (BBBS) tailgate party. This year's event was re-imagined like no other with themed tailgate games, sports, and live music.
HBKers attended the Kids Above All 2021 Virtual Gala: A Night of Impact & Action. The one-hour online event highlighted the strength and resilience of the Kids Above All young people, recognized IDEX and Power Construction for their corporate support, and featured Kids Above All Youth of the Year, Sofia Gonzalez.
