Oakbrook Terrace, August 4th As part of Wolf & Company’s ongoing commitment to give back to the community, the firm sponsored a school supply drive for the students at George W. Tilton Elementary School in Chicago. Wolf & Company employees’ wanted to help Tilton students, where 96% come from low income households, feel more confident and prepared for the first day of school. The goal of the drive was to collect 50 backpacks, and if this was reached, the firm would match an additional 50 backpacks.

Wolf & Company employees contributed to this drive by donating new backpacks, crayons, markers, notebooks, folders, kleenex, paper towels, sketchpads, water color paints, glue sticks, pencils, and erasers. Employees also had the option of making a monetary donation which was used to buy any additional supplies needed. Donations were also collected from other businesses located in Wolf’s office building.

Through employee contributions, Wolf & Company supported over 25% of the school’s students by providing 105 backpacks (firm match of 50) and enough supplies to fill each of them. The principal and staff at George W. Tilton Elementary School were very thankful and appreciative of our efforts.
