Ronald McDonald Family Room
Some of our Team Champion staff was fortunate enough to be able to go and visit the Ronald McDonald Family Room, located at Edwards Hospital in Naperville, IL. Here they brought and served lunch to all of the deserving families and staff that spend countless hours and days at this location. It was heart warming to be able to offer them a warm meal, a smiling face and a listening ear. We look forward to partnering with the Ronald McDonald House again next season!

Volunteer at Northern Illinois Food Bank
Our Team Champion staff had such a great time at the Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva, IL. While at the location we learned just how all of the products are received, handled and delivered to their respective locations. Being able to assist in the warehouse and work with other companies was a great team bonding activity, while also giving back in our community. We are excited to return this summer!
