CHICAGO - (December 19, 2016)
For the fourth year in a row, full-service real estate firm Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, organized a company-wide toy drive benefiting Toys For Tots during the holiday season. The initiative collected contributions from Draper and Kramer employees across the Chicago area, including corporate office staff, property management site employees, and Lombard-based Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. More than $4,000 in donated toys filled an entire meeting room at Draper and Kramer’s corporate headquarters prior to being delivered to Toys For Tots December 20. Additionally, Draper and Kramer is currently in the midst of a pajama drive for critically ill children at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. “We have amazing employees who are always so enthusiastic about giving back to our community,” said Jane Kanan, senior vice president at Draper and Kramer. “That’s especially true at this time of the year, when even something small like a new toy or special pajamas can do so much to brighten the holidays for a child in need.”
Both initiatives are part of a robust charitable giving program at Draper and Kramer that regularly raises money and donations for 501(c)(3) organizations selected by the company’s employees. Organizations are chosen based on their reputation and commitment to address the needs of the communities they serve, while placing emphasis on supporting local organizations in the Chicagoland region whose visions address the betterment of the city and the people in it.
