Toy Drive Brings Christmas to Children of Incarcerated Parents

Angel Tree Toy Drive Brings Christmas to Children of Incarcerated Parents

When Human Resources team leader Theresa Faulkner could no longer move freely around her office, it was clear that Roscoe's annual Christmas toy drive had been a success.

"I can't even get to my file cabinets," she said.

A mountain of baby dolls and a fleet of remote-control cars barred the way. There were Transformers, art supplies, an Easy-Bake Oven, and boxes rattling with Legos.

The toys were on their way to 30 neighborhood children between the ages of two and 14, as part of the "Angel Tree" program operated in Chicago by Celestial Ministries, in partnership with Prison Fellowship, to collect toys and gifts for the children of an incarcerated parent.



Coat Angels Campaign Leaves Roscoe Employees Feeling Warm

Coat Angels Campaign Leaves Roscoe Employees Feeling Warm

At Roscoe, we help people get dressed for work all year long. But it's a special honor when we get to help Chicago area schoolchildren get dressed properly for winter.

Since 2006, the not-for-profit Coat Angels organization has been outfitting underprivileged Chicago children with new coats, hats, fleeces, and gloves.

It's an effort that has helped keep more than 4,000 area children warm over the years. The all-volunteer program collects donations, partners with retailers, and shops for coats and accessories for specific children identified by teachers and social workers.

At Roscoe, our fundraising drive for the Coat Angels will begin next month. HR Team Leader Theresa Faulkner estimates that up to 85% of our employees participated last year, either by donating money, volunteering to help with coat deliveries, or both. Employee fundraising was matched by a company donation.



Roscoe Is Proud to Sponsor the A21 WalkForFreedom

Chicago Uniform Company Sponsors A21 WalkForFreedom 2016

Roscoe was proud to sponsor IT & Marketing Coordinator Wayne Wasion to participate in the first Chicago WalkForFreedom on Saturday, October 15, organized by A21.

Ending Human Trafficking

A21 is a non-profit organization whose mission is to end human trafficking. The WalkForFreedom is a global event to raise funds and awareness for their efforts to bring an end to this atrocity.

Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world's fastest growing criminal industry, it affects every nation across the globe. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.
