Working with the HEAR Foundation is something that is very near and dear to my heart. One of my favorite programs that HEAR does is the HEAR Feeds Program. Twice a year they give nearly 40,000 pounds of Chicken away to different organizations and neighborhoods in need around Chicago. To date they have given over to 500,000 meals to people in need. I helped organize volunteers, move boxes, deliver Chicken to different organizations and saw the impact it had when people of the communities came to pick up their Chicken. After having helped HEAR with this a couple times, one of my favorite experiences with this was when I saw a single mother come to pick up her Chicken with her 6 kids. She explained to me how grateful she was because her kids have not been able to have protein in over 6 months. It is stories like this that keep me coming back to help the HEAR Foundation. They do great work and you can see the impact they have on the communities they work in.

The greatest thing about this foundation is that 100% of my donation goes directly to projects and programs. It is so nice to know that my money is going DIRECTLY to where it can best help people.

The staff and volunteers make working with this foundation so much fun. Everyone is there because they truly believe in the program they are volunteering for. It is so much fun when you can enjoy what you're doing and know it is for a great cause!
