Corkill cares about homelessness
Instead of sleeping late on the Fourth of July, Corkill employees and their families passed out clementines, water bottles, girl scout cookies and raffle prizes to participants in the Great Western Freedom 4, a run to support the Lazarus House Homeless Shelter. The Lazarus House provides safe shelter, food, and a range of support services for men, women, and children in need. "I had a great time assisting runners on a hot day. It was extra special knowing the work we did at the race helped folks in need," said Frank Brotto, Corkill's Personal Lines Vice President. "I felt that it was important to come out and support such a significant fundraising drive as we were spending the day celebrating our nation’s freedom. I realize that many people in the greater Chicago area are not living in freedom when they are struggling to find shelter and to pay for essentials, such as food, rent, and utilities," said Elaine Pearlman, Corkill's Personal Lines Support Team Manager.
