Sika Corporation will be partnering with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago to help rehabilitate the YOUth CAN community center building on September 8. YOUth CAN is an integral non-profit organization in the Austin community of Chicago. Along with their employees volunteering their time to assist in the rehabilitation, Sika will donate products to address the building repair needs.
YOUth CAN provides low-income individuals and youth with education in music, art, and computer technology. They strive to give youth the tools and confidence they need to excel both academically and artistically.
“Through our upcoming partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, we hope to help make a positive and lasting investment in the city of Chicago,” said Jay Thomas, VP Marketing, Roofing and Flooring for Sika.
Sika employees and their leadership team will volunteer their time during a Give Back Day on September 8th 2016. Give Back Days are hands-on, volunteer-driven days of service and typically include painting, landscaping, organizing, cleaning, and various other building repairs.
According to Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, Give Back Day sponsors and volunteers have worked to improve over 200 community facilities in Chicago to date. Please contact Brian Blaquiere for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
