We created the Cause Container project as a fun way for everyone at Hub Group to share something we all believe in - giving back. The goal of this on-going endeavor is simple. To raise as much money for and as much awareness about or charities as possible to celebrate their achievements and prolong their efforts. And with your help spreading the word, that's exactly what we're going to do.
The inaugural year was so well received by Hub Group employees, charity partners and the public, that we have added two non-profit organizations to the 2017 program: National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks; and Chicago Blackhawks Charities, which supports programs and institutions that impact the lives of youth and their families in and around the city of Chicago and state of Illinois.
These two organizations will join current partners, which include: Bright Pink, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Fisher House. The charities selected have personal connections to our employees and fulfill Hub Group’s ambition of making the world a better place. Your support is appreciated.
Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago is a state-of-the-art hospital located in downtown Chicago on the campus of its academic partner, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The hospital is ranked as one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals in U.S. News & World Report. The hospital relies on philanthropic support to care for more than 174,000 children each year.
Bright Pink is a national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. The organization’s mission is to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. Bright Pink’s innovative programs educate and equip young women to assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer, reduce their risk, and detect these diseases at early, non life-threatening stages.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major U.S. military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital it serves. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veteran families an estimated $200 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
The National Park Foundation is the official charity of America’s national parks and nonprofit partner to the National Park Service. Chartered by Congress in 1967, the National Park Foundation raises private funds to help PROTECT more than 84 million acres of national parks through critical conservation and preservation efforts, CONNECT all Americans with their incomparable natural landscapes, vibrant culture and rich history, and INSPIRE the next generation of park stewards.
As the official charity of the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Blackhawks Charities pledges to support programs and institutions throughout Illinois that work towards creating a better tomorrow. Chicago Blackhawks Charities focuses on health and wellness, education and housing, striving to serve local citizens and impact the lives of youth and their families in and around the city of Chicago.
