Kicking off Giving Tuesday and the holiday season with one of our favorite charity traditions- Toys for Tots!
This year, for the fourth time, K-Five Construction is proud to be an official drop site for Toys for Tots! The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. Collection boxes are located by the front desk in the Westmont office and in the Hodgkins Shop, and will be there now through December 9!

We know the K-Five family has a lot of charities they already support, and remind everyone this effort is entirely voluntary and without pressure. This is just a positive and meaningful way to kick off the holiday season for anyone who wants to join in!
The K-Five Team walked in person and remotely to support St. Jude and their fight to end childhood cancers last Saturday. We are blown away by the generosity of the K-Five Family, and even more donations came in on race day in person that are still being calculated, but on top of K-Five’s financial sponsorship of the event, the team raised near $15k for St. Jude! Wow! Thank you so, so much to everyone who walked and donated to this great cause!
K-Five is thrilled to announce our 2022 team charity event: The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Walk in Chicago on Saturday, September 24!
This event will be held at Montrose Harbor in Chicago on Saturday, September 24th at approx. 8AM. K-Five is happy to announce that we will not only be participating in the walk, but K-Five will also be a sponsor to the event! Our team will have our very own tent for K-Five volunteers to host and this event will also be entertaining with family friendly activities, including music, visits from Chicago sports mascots and Disney princesses, and more.

MORE ABOUT ST. JUDE
St. Jude is a pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children's catastrophic diseases, particularly cancers. St. Jude is one of a few pediatric research organizations in the United States where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. In addition to providing medical services to eligible patients, St. Jude also assists families with transportation, lodging, and meals. When St. Jude opened in 1962, the childhood cancer survival rate was just 20%; with their research and dedication, that number has grown to over 80% today!
More information and exciting kickoff events are coming soon. We are so excited about K-Five's fourth annual team philanthropic effort!
