Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago at Park Ridge supported local restaurants, first responders and healthcare workers during Community Kindness 2022

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Park Ridge office in Chicago encouraged the community to dine on-site during the company’s Community Kindness initiative. Each week, the office chose a different restaurant to highlight. Officers reached out to their spheres of influence via social media and the menu was placed in the window of the office at 122 Main Street. Officers in the office then ordered and delivered meals from the restaurant to a first responder or health care agency.

The first week, the office shone the spotlight on Hay Caramba, a Mexican restaurant located at 122 S. Prospect, then delivered meals from there to the Park Ridge Police Department. Week two featured Spuntino’s Pizza, located at 516 W. Higgins, and officers from the office delivered pizzas to Park Ridge Fire Station #35. Week three was the Sweet and Tart Shoppe (S&T) located at 112 S. Prospect Avenue, where charcuterie platters were delivered to Park Ridge Care Center and the Summit of Uptown. Mel’s Craft BBQ, located at 24 Main Street, capped off the month of events with another visit to the local police department to thank them for their service to the community. The restaurants, police department, fire department and healthcare workers were all pleased with the good food and the recognition.

Katie Roberts, Vice President and Designated Chief Broker for the Park Ridge office, said, “Our agents and staff wanted to support our Park Ridge restaurants, first responders and healthcare workers once again this year during our annual Community Kindness initiative. appropriate way for us to give back. After all, these restaurants and first responders feed and support our families. What better way to show the spirit of Park Ridge than to encourage others to enjoy our restaurants and deliver meals expressing their gratitude to our police, fire and healthcare workers. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us in our endeavors and I would especially like to thank Kindness Ambassador Lynn Story for orchestrating the details of this wonderful event.
