IHT Gives Back at the Western Springs ONEMEAL Food Packing Event
The Annual “Thanks for Giving” OneMeal Food Charity Event is hosted by Leah and Matt Hilding (clients of IHT), each year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The Event is set up with volunteers in an assembly-line type fashion to pack food for children in impoverished countries. The Hilding’s have been partnering with Kids Around the World for their OneMeal Event for the last 6 years. Over the last five years, IHT employees have attended this event to help pack meals. This year, IHT took over an entire time slot of 200 people and invited not just employees, but clients, their friends, and families to help pack over 70,000 meals for children in Haiti. This year, their goal was to reach 1,000,000 meals in six years- and with our volunteer’s efforts, we were able to surpass this goal!
