IDEX Corporate Teams Compete, Donate Holiday Gifts for Children in Chicago
December 20, 2021
IDEX corporate employees from the Northbrook and downtown Chicago offices, competed against each other this month to purchase holiday gifts online for local children who have experienced trauma.
Again supporting the charity “Kids Above All,” the Virtual Holiday Drive included a friendly competition, with IDEX corporate team members split into teams to see which group could donate the most gifts.
In less than three weeks, more than 150 corporate team members and their family members donated more than 500 gifts, which were delivered straight from retailers to Kids Above All for distribution. With 139 total gifts donated, the team led by Rula Marziani claimed victory.
“We are blown away by the generosity of our great corporate partner, IDEX Corporation, who generously donated toys, books and other items so our young people have a special holiday season and achieve their potential,” the KAA team said on LinkedIn.
‘Kids Above All,’, protects, heals and educates children and families who have experienced trauma – including abuse, neglect, poverty, toxic stress, and violence.
IDEX Corporate began partnering with the Kids Above All in 2020. With support from the IDEX Foundation, the team donated $55,000 USD for Technology, Housing, and Group Therapy for at-risk youth in the Chicago area. To learn about the history of the partnership, click here.
