The Race to Feed Chicago Feeds Thousands

More than 140 Blessings friends and supporters gathered at Protiviti offices in Chicago on April 18 for the Race to Feed Chicago, resulting in the packing and delivery of 2,000 bags of food to local school children and raising nearly $11,000 to support further efforts against childhood hunger.
