We call ourselves AGB, which stands for Always Giving Back. Reinvesting in our community is extremely important to us. The leadership team at AGB Investigative Services Inc. has built a culture of giving among its more than 700 employees.
Every year on our anniversary, we celebrate by paying it forward in underserved areas of Chicago. We partner with nonprofit organizations that could use additional resources and volunteers to help them achieve their goals. We engage our own employees, enlisting them in our efforts to help children and families through service. Our Community Appreciation Program is one of the most rewarding and unifying initiatives at AGB!
What does Community Appreciation look like?
In years past, we have collected new socks, undershirts and gently used pants and jackets to fill care packages for needy families. We’ve written notes encouraging people to have faith in their own ability to improve their lives. We have shopped for supplies, cooked and served meals, and cleaned up afterwards. We’ve packed first aid kits and filled backpacks with school supplies. Our employees are vested in these efforts because they help choose the organizations we sponsor. They also join us in the work—and the joy—of helping others.
The organizations we partner with serve people of color who are going through hardship. By helping others, our own employees expand their awareness of community needs and various organizations they can support. They also learn how to incorporate giving back into their lives. It is our sincere hope to inspire lifelong change within our own staff, empowering them and their family members to become civic leaders who will work to strengthen our community as a whole.
We have prepared hundreds of meals and care packages for deserving organizations through our Community Appreciation program, including the following:
You can make excuses about a lot of things, but giving back to others shouldn’t be one of them! The AGB Foundation wants to strengthen our community, and sometimes just putting in the work is what we need to do.
