Champion Logistics Group is honored to support Food for Friends and their continued efforts to help less fortunate families in Chicago.  Our two organizations have partnered with the City of Northlake to provide Thanksgiving dinners to dozens of Northlake families.

Champion Logistics Group employees gather for a group photo after packing Food For Friends Blue Bags with hundreds of food items donated by employees.

Champion, with help from their generous employees, collected hundreds of food items over the month of November.  These items include vegetables, fruits, turkey, desserts and more. On Saturday, November 18th, the Champion staff sorted the items and created 50 individual Blue Bags from the donated food.   Food For Friends added a turkey to go along with each blue bag.  A total of 50 turkeys and Blue Bags were then delivered by Food for Friends to needy families in the community.

Food for Friends is an organization that feels compelled to give back to a community that has given them so much. Through the donation of time, money and other resources, Food for Friends has given these people the gifts of hope, faith and love.

Champion is truly grateful to be part of such generosity.
