Roscoe Headline Event Will Open 2018 Scottish Festival

If you’re a fan of “The Bonnie Banks O’ Loch Lomond,” – and who isn't? – you’ll love the Roscoe-sponsored Midwest Pipe Band Association Competition which headlines Chicago’s 2018 Scottish Festival & Highland Games next month.

This family-friendly, two-day annual festival will open to a skirl of the pipes at 1 p.m., June 15 at Hamilton Lakes, 1 Pierce Place in Itasca. The festival continues from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on June 16 and features a wide variety of activities and attractions from whisky tasting and Celtic rock to highland dance, rugby games, and a Scottish petting zoo. Don’t miss the chance to trace your ancestry at the genealogy and clan tartan booths, or browse the festival’s Celtic market, where you can buy everything Scottish, whether it’s a kilt, shortbread, soccer jerseys or haggis.

Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

An early morning breakfast and networking event drew dozens of Chicago-area business leaders to the Garden City Business Center last week to learn how to hone their social media techniques and to gather with leaders of the Lawndale Business Renaissance Association and the Business Executives Association.

The event, co-hosted by Roscoe, along with the LBRA and BEA, included a panel discussion on "Growing Your Business Through Social Media." The panel included representatives of a jeans manufacturing company, an upscale cupcake bakery and a junk removal service, who described the range of strategies they employ for connecting with prospective and current customers on social media, along with techniques for dealing with negative reviews.

Industry & Community Leadership: Beyond the Bottom Line

Roscoe Corporate Social Responsibility

At Roscoe, we've worked hard to earn our reputation for providing high quality work uniform rentals and unmatched customer service.

But behind the scenes, we work just as hard to be a good neighbor to our community, a responsible steward of the environment and a leader to the industry.

There's more to running a business than the bottom line. Especially when the business is one your family founded three generations back. We are building something we can be proud to leave to the next generation, and a place where our employees will be proud to work, now – and a decade from now. We want to be an asset to our community – the community where we go to work, where our customers reside and the same community that our team members call home.

We know that's not something that can be accomplished just by talking about it, so here's what we've been up to recently.

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.
