Veterans’ Honor Flight of Illinois
Last June, we were proud to support the second annual Golf Scramble fundraiser, with proceeds benefitting the Veteran’s Honor Flight of Illinois. Held in Carbondale, last year’s event successfully raised more than $25,000. You can see pictures from the event on our Facebook page.
Additionally, last May, Attorney Matthew H. Caraway was selected to serve as a guardian on the organization’s free trip to Washington, D.C. for veterans. The organization provides free trips to Washington, D.C. for veterans to visit various monuments and memorials. Matt was honored to take part in this event, as he is a veteran himself, having served with the Illinois Air National Guard for seven years.
Classroom Kindness Challenge
The Classroom Kindness Challenge encourages kids and teens to be kind to others while also spotlighting bullying in our schools. Students who participated in the challenge completed positive tasks, such as saying hello to someone new or paying someone a compliment, from a Classroom Kindness Challenge Board. Once the board was completed, teachers could upload a picture of the board, along with their students, for a chance to win a “Doughnut Be a Bully” party, as well as $500 for classroom supplies. Sam C. Mitchell & Associates was proud to partner with WSIL-TV 3 and Kyle R. Childers Orthodontics for this positive challenge. You can learn more here!
