IDEX Corporate Receives Lucy Rider Meyer Humanitarian Award for Corporate Leadership
November 30, 2021
The IDEX Team in Northbrook, Illinois, received an award from Kids Above All’s Board of Trustees and Staff at an annual Gala event this month.
The Lucy Rider Meyer Humanitarian Award, which is named after the organization’s founder, recognizes the accomplishments of key local, national and international leaders, organizations, and corporations who enhance the ability of children and their families to achieve their potential, help youth heal from past trauma, realize their value, and enable families to achieve a sense of social, emotional, and physical well-being.
“IDEX proudly supports Kids Above All and its work to help Chicago kids who have experienced trauma, including providing housing assistance, therapy resources and technology enhancements,” IDEX Chief Financial Officer Bill Grogan said. “We look forward to expanding our involvement, especially as opportunities for in-person volunteerism become possible again.”
IDEX Corporate began partnering with the KAA in 2020. Partnering with the IDEX Foundation, the team donated $55,000 USD for Technology, Housing, and Group Therapy for at-risk youth in the Chicagoland community. The team is preparing to begin the annual holiday gift drive to help more children near the Headquarters.
“In the past two years, IDEX has made a difference for nearly client and staff member at Kids Above All, supporting the organization’s diversity, equity, inclusion and access efforts and our Early Childhood, Emerge, Group Homes and Camp Sheilah programs, as well as providing gifts for our kids during the holidays and hygiene kits for our young people in foster care,” the Kids Above All award states. “IDEX’s leadership truly reflects the spirit of our founder, Lucy Rider Meyer, who dedicated her life to ensuring that children achieve their full potential, and we cannot you enough for your dedication to our mission.”
