Over the past 2 years, the Boomerang team has worked to raise corporate standards and become a more socially minded and environmentally conscious company. Their vision was simple: to create a company that upheld the values of its employees. In 2016 that vision was achieved with Boomerang becoming a Certified B Corporation®. Boomerang is always looking for opportunities to serve our community, and we are excited to participate in Family Matters’ annual Walkathon.
Family Matters connects at-risk youth and their families in Northeast Rogers Park to opportunities (resources, relationships, and real-world experiences) that support them in actualizing their life goals and building a strong, healthy community. For 29 years, Family Matters has operated programs and initiatives that promote safe space, educational support and leadership development among low-income families.
The 28th Annual Walkathon will raise crucial funds to support Family Matters’ four Youth Programs, which meet after school: Family Connections (literacy and leadership for youth ages 5-12), Boys to Men (Teen Boys Program), Transforming Genius into Powerful love (Teen Girls Program), and Evening Tutoring (during which 40 tutor-mentor pairs meet weekly for academic support and relationship-building).
Please consider making a donation to support my walk and Family Matters – every dollar makes a difference!
