giving tuesday head

This year, on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, Anixter Center and its three divisions—CALOR, Chicago Hearing Society and Lekotek—are part of a national call to action that will change the calendar, help make history and transform lives. We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving. #GivingTuesday is a day when across the country charities, families, businesses, students, retailers and more come together to make a big difference in the lives of others.

This #GivingTuesday is your chance to help make the holidays great for adults with disabilities. $500 will provide decorations, gifts and more for all the adults with disabilities living in one of Anixter Center’s residences. Every $500 raised will help another house!

Anixter Center Receives Grant to Upgrade Lighting from Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation

Chicago, Ill. (May 12, 2014) —Anixter Center, one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the Chicago area serving people with disabilities, has received a $31,200 grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation to install energy efficient upgrades to its lighting systems.

The upgrades are planned for 14 Anixter Center buildings, including residences for people with disabilities, buildings where programs and services are provided to people with disabilities and administration offices. Among the many benefits of these lighting upgrades are better lighting quality across buildings, savings on energy bills and reduced energy usage, which, in turn, will help protect the environment.

The upgrades are being installed now and, when completed, are expect to reduce kilowatt usage by more than 200,000 hours, yielding significant annual savings for Anixter Center.

"Savings like this that occur year after year are so important to organizations like Anixter Center," said Kevin Limbeck, Anixter Center President and CEO. "The money we save on energy will allow us to reach out and help even more people with disabilities."
