SBB Research Group Names November 2021 Grant Finalists: Northern Illinois Food Bank, PADS Lake County, The Period Collective

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SBB Research Group recognizes three Chicago-area charities as the November 2021 finalists of its monthly grant program supporting impactful nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic (in alphabetical order):

  • Northern Illinois Food Bank (Geneva) provides families experiencing food insecurity access to groceries through a network of 900 food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout the region.
  • PADS Lake County (Waukegan) supports homeless and at-risk individuals and families by providing housing assistance, resources, and shelter.
  • The Period Collective (Lake Forest) partners with local organizations to provide feminine hygiene products to women facing housing and income challenges.

These finalists will give brief presentations via videoconference to the investment firm's staff, who will ask questions to learn more about each of these important causes. The employees will then vote to allocate the company's awards. Each finalist will receive at least a $1,000 donation.

Last month, The Bloc received a $5,000 grant to provide local youth with academic support and mentorship through the sport of boxing. In addition, the funds will enable the organization to expand its programs to other schools and communities.
