Centrifuge is more than a brand marketing firm elevating American manufacturing. We are a compassionate group of community-minded individuals intent on making the world around us a better, more equitable place. Our team members know we have a responsibility to be positive forces in our communities. We know that contributing to the greater good matters. We know we can make a difference.
The world is a huge place with huge challenges facing everyone every day. Overcoming them requires every last one of us to play our role and be part of the solution. That's why Fuge Gives Huge!
Families with seriously ill children enjoyed a dinner together at Ronald McDonald House in Chicago with a little help from the Centrifuge team on Nov. 16. Led by Chef Ken Mallwitz, we prepared and served a meal that dozens of families enjoyed without the stress of cooking or expense of dining out.
With the chef's guidance, our team members prepped for a meal of blackened catfish, collard greens, dirty rice, and fresh salad. We then cooked the catfish, greens, and rice; served it to families in the dining room; and cleaned up after ourselves. We also were given a tour of the house and its amenities available for up to 80 families. Our four-hour shift was part of the Ronald McDonald House's Culinary Hearts program, which always needs volunteers.
The Ronald McDonald House near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago provides housing, support, compassion, and a sense of community so families with children undergoing medical treatment can still spend quality time together. It serves as a home away from home for these families during challenging times.
This heart-lifting night was one way we are working together as a team to give back, give hope, and give ourselves to the people and communities who most need it.
Thank you to Chef Ken and the Ronald McDonald House for all the work you do and for helping Fuge Gives Huge!
It was a cool evening at Spring Rock Park in Western Springs, Illinois, on Oct.15, but participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light the Night walk warmed our hearts. Our generous supporters helped the Fuge Gives Huge team raise $12,730 during the Light the Night campaign. The donations allow the LLS to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers.
Many of our clients, vendors, collaborators, friends, and families stepped in to support our team and our loved ones who walked with us. A full list of donors can be found here.
We are so grateful for everyone's help in exceeding our goal of $12,500 and bringing light to the darkness of cancer.
The Light the Night walk is just one of the ways we are lifting up our neighbors and communities. Our small but dedicated team knows we can do our part to help others overcome obstacles and support those working toward solutions to our collective challenges. Together, we all can make a difference in this world.
