MAKING A DIRECT IMPACT

LIVES IMPACTED

Reedy Cares logo

 
Reedy Cares volunteers have given back to those that are less fortunate in so many ways.

Children that had only empty lots to play on now have terrific playgrounds where they can exercise, laugh, and play. Reedy volunteers have built 11 playgrounds for Chicago Area schoolchildren. Please take a look below at the pictures of our Playground Builds. There you will see the smiling faces of the schoolchildren, Reedy volunteers, and community participants. In one day an empty lot is transformed into a playground that generations of children will enjoy for many years.

The Playgrounds are our biggest charitable event but there are many other ways we contribute to those that need our help. Reedy Cares Individual Company Projects include volunteering at soup kitchens, collecting coats and clothes for those in need, gifts for children for the Holidays, and many more charitable endeavors. This is done with a happy heart, a smile on our faces, and the joy of knowing we have helped those in need.

Thank you for visiting our Reedy Cares page.

Best regards,
