"My personal philosophy—to do the right things for the right reasons every time, without exception—has guided True Cuisine and Sweet Baby Ray's Catering, leading to committed clients and valuable relationships with partners like Chicago Cares. Having grown up in the same communities where Chicago Cares' work has the most impact, I can personally attest that they also live by this philosophy, and we're very proud to be a partner!"

"Partnering with Chicago Cares has enabled Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois to engage our employees and connect them more intimately with Chicago communities through volunteer improvement projects. Along the way, it's helped positively represent our brand in neighborhoods that might not be familiar with it and reinforce the long-standing civic commitment to the City of Chicago that the company began in 1936. I'd like to thank our own Austin Waldron for his service on the board of Chicago Cares, a commitment that speaks to our deep belief in the mission of the organization."
