You're Invited: Join Abt Team to Volunteer at City Year

If volunteering more was one of your New Year's resolutions for 2015, join Abt Electronics and Appliances employees on Aprill 11 at Chalmers School of Excellence to help at risk students in local schools get the assistance they need to stay in school and graduate on time.

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.
