Gerry’s started the first cafe in Arlington Heights designed to be staffed and provide employment opportunities for developmentally challenged adults in our community. We have supported Gerry’s from the beginning and will continue to do what we can to help. Our firm continues to be excited at the significant progress Gerry’s Cafe continues to make toward the goal of offering employment to exceptional individuals with intellectual disabilities.
In the summer of 2019, we held a $1,000 matching fundraiser supporting the cafe on Facebook. In just a little over two weeks, we collected $1140, which we matched for a total donation of $2280. Natalie Porter Griffin, one of the co-founders of the cafe, said it best, “Such joyful news! Thank you, everyone.”
