Team Wheaton is giving back once again! Agents, staff and family members spent this past Monday evening cooking dinner for Central DuPage Hospital’s Ronald McDonald House in west suburban Winfield. Jackie Gibson was team Captain, with her husband Mark Gibson serving as Co-Captain! “Meals From the Heart” dinners help provide home-cooked meals for RMH patients and their families. During the initial volunteer event earlier this year, our agent-chefs had so much fun, they decided to do it again. Thank you to everyone who came together, extending the efforts of the KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation. Well done! For photo highlights, please click here.
The Libertyville team hosted a PADS dinner in Grayslake last night. PADS, or “Providing Advocacy, Dignity, and Shelter”, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the homeless find short and long term housing and resources. Agents Ellen O’Toole and Millie Kepler organized the evening, which included 15 agents and staff cooking dinner for about 40 participants. We are thrilled to see our offices giving back to the communities they serve. Well done everyone! See more photos of the event on our Facebook page here.
The agents and staff of our Glenview office conducted a very exciting auction where they raised $1,500 for the Glenbook South High School Habitat Summer Program. The program takes 15 students to Northern Wisconsin where they work for a week building a home. The school tries to grant at least students scholarships for five students to attend the program.
One Magnificent Cause

Our Winnetka office proudly delivered food to the Northfield Township Food Pantry this week. Led by agents Cristal Schepis, Shawn McGuinness Gavin and Scott Kalo, shopping bags brimming with peanut butter, soup, cereal, snacks, macaroni and cheese, pasta, sauces, vegetables, and baby food, lined the office entryway. Donations from agents, clients and neighbors grew, as the team collected items throughout the month of November. We are thankful for the group’s efforts in giving back to North Shore communities!
For more than 20 years, the agents and staff of our Libertyville office have collected donations and prepared complete Thanksgiving meals for less-fortunate Lake County families who might not otherwise have a special meal on this day of thanks. Last year, the Libertyville office provided 120 full Thanksgiving dinners for Lake County families. With the generous support of KoenigRubloff agents and the community, the office hopes to significantly increase the number of dinners and make this a Thanksgiving worth remembering. On Tuesday, November 25, 2014 between 10:00 am – 11:30 am, the Libertyville Office will gather again at Sunset Foods, 1451 Peterson Road in Libertyville, to assemble the meals that will be delivered to families in need.
