Stampede Cares In Action

Stampede Cares participates in multiple team building and fundraising events throughout the year in order to strengthen our surrounding communities.

In 2019, Stampede Cares partnered with Vitalant, one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit community blood service providers to host an onsite blood drive. Over 30 volunteers signed up to donate blood and save lives.

Throughout 2018, Stampede Cares partnered with The Salvation Army, an international movement to meet human need wherever, whenever and however they can. Team members volunteered to pack off over 500 food boxes for Chicagoland families in need. They also step it up each holiday season, donating hundreds of nonperishable food items and chicken to feed over 2,000 families.

Stampede Cares partnered with Pillars Community Health, a national nonprofit fighting to end domestic violence. Through carnival games at an all-staff picnic, and T-shirt sales, Stampede raised money to donate to the cause during the summer of 2018.

During the fall, Stampede Care’s held the first ever, Stampede Olympic Games to support No Kid Hungry, a national nonprofit fighting to end child hunger, connect kids with nutritious foods and educate families about healthy, affordable cooking.
