The Evergreen Park office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago is pleased to announce the start of its annual Community Kindness event.

During Community Kindness, held in conjunction with the firm’s Kindness Foundation, each of the company’s 25 offices select local organizations to support. This year, during the month of June, the Evergreen Park office will collect donations for Almost Home Chicago, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide one-on-one support to local homeless populations, offer food to the food insecure and work to increase compassion for under-loved and underserved populations.

The Evergreen Park office has scheduled special drop-off days on June 19 and 20 from 12 to 4 p.m. The drop off site will be located in a white tent outside the office at 3580 W. 95th St.

“We joined forces with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago in January, so this is our office’s first opportunity to participate in Community Kindness, and we can’t wait! Our agents love giving back, so they are reaching out to their clients, friends and family to make a big impact for Almost Home and the people they serve. If you are able to assist us, we would certainly welcome and appreciate your donations,” said Laura Freeman, managing broker of the Evergreen Park office.

The office will accept items throughout June during business hours, and it has set up a special “blessings box” in its foyer. Contributions can be made Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
