AEC Cares Project Chicago

Event Photography by LeVern Danley

Our Learning and Wellness Center is becoming even more beautiful thanks to the more than 150 design and construction professionals and volunteers who donated their time and hard work on June 25 for “project Chicago,” a one-day “blitz build” at the Center.

Volunteers painted walls, installed cabinets, laid flooring, inserted tiles and more.

Client families from throughout Chicago’s New City, Englewood and West Englewood communities will benefit from the many Center improvements.

The event was made possible by AEC Cares, a non-profit corporation supported by Reed Construction Data, with the American Institute of Architects and Hanley Wood, generous sponsors, donors and volunteers.

Thanks again to AEC Cares and all the volunteers who made project Chicago possible!
