Charity Drive at the Annual Meeting
Charity Drive at the IPS Annual Meeting
We are partnering with Street Samaritans to host a cold-weather coat, clothing and shoe drive to provide support to individuals experiencing homelessness this winter in the Chicagoland area. We will have boxes set up at the Annual Meeting to collect items. A wish list is below.
Please help us make a difference.
