You’re Invited: Join Abt Team to Volunteer at City Year
This year, Abt Family Charitable Foundation has joined forces with City Year Chicago, an education-focused nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to helping to keep students on track with a higher goal of graduation, and has become the official sponsor of the Abt City Year Team. The group of 8 works with 109 students on a daily basis to improve their attendance, behavior and course performance, while providing class support for 195 students in 4th through 8th grade.
Abt, nation’s largest independent, single-store retailer of electronics and appliances, is inviting employees, their families and everyone over the age of 12 to participate in the Abt Service Day, where everyone will get a chance to participate in a wide-range of projects, including painting, light construction and landscaping.
