CRC is proud to support and partner with Chicago Furniture Bank in 2023.
We are excited to welcome our newest charity partner, Chicago Furniture Bank. The mission of the Chicago Furniture Bank (CFB) is to provide dignity, stability, and comfort to Chicagoans moving into supportive housing by allowing them to hand-pick an entire home’s worth of furnishings. Through the partnership with 290 social service agencies, the CFB has furnished 1,550 homes for 4,100 clients, distributing 28,000 pieces of furniture (750 tons), in just 16 months since first starting. Currently the CFB furnishes eight homes per day and employs a full-time staff of 20 with 75% being hired from nonprofit workforce development agencies. There is an endless need for their furnishing program and limitless supply of furniture looking to be donated. The CFB plans to continue to grow with the goal being to turn 2,000 more houses into homes in 2020. This is an amazing group of young men and we are so excited to partner with them.

In 2000, CRC leadership saw the need to formalize the charitable giving of the organization. That same year, the Charitable Causes Committee was formed to encourage CRC membership to engage with local charities and leverage their own charitable hearts.
Volunteer opportunities will be announced during the year. No previous experience is necessary. A willing spirit and a giving heart automatically qualify you to take part in the activity.
Please keep an eye out for opportunities to give: the Silent Auction in February of each year is by far the biggest fundraiser. Smaller opportunities are made part of the other meetings.
