Proceed Innovative is the Presenting Sponsor for the Members & Miles Virtual Mile Competition

The past year has been difficult to say the least and the restrictions put in place during the pandemic have prevented many businesses from meeting at the office each day.  To help promote team building in the new year, the Schaumburg Business Association (SBA) is putting on a Members & Miles event in which businesses who are members of the SBA will compete against each other to see who can walk, run, and wheel with a wheelchair the most miles.  Proceed Innovative is proud to announce that we are the Presenting Sponsor for this event. About the Event The Members & Miles event is open to businesses who are members of the SBA, as well as non-members, and it will run from January 15 through February 15, 2021.  Teams of between 2 and 10 people can enter this event at a $50 per team fee.  There can be multiple teams within a business, but each team will have to pay the entrance fee.  Teams that enter are competing against all other teams, including teams within their own company and the teams from other SBA members. Between January 15 and February 15, the members of each team will cover as many miles as they can by walking, running, or wheeling with a wheelchair.  Biking is not allowed.  Each team member must track their own miles on the honors system and report their miles to a designated team captain who will log all of the team’s miles.  The team captain will report their team’s total miles to the SBA each week throughout the duration of the event.  For more accurate tracking,...

Mid-West Moving Puts on Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive

Mid-West Moving Puts on Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive

Every Thanksgiving season, Mid-West Moving & Storage, a professional moving company in the Chicago area, puts on a food drive to collect food items for local food pantries.  In previous years, the businesses that participated in this food drive kept a box at their office or building and their employees would bring food items to fill the box.  A representative from Mid-West Moving & Storage would then collect the boxes at the end of the drive. This year, the food drive has to be done a little differently due to the pandemic.  Instead of businesses hosting boxes at their offices, Mid-West Moving & Storage is asking for donations in the form of checks and gift cards for their Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive. Because of the ongoing pandemic, food pantries need additional help.  Mid-West Moving & Storage started the Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive to support the Elk Grove Presbyterian Church Food Pantry this holiday season.  Businesses and individuals can donate checks and gift cards for grocery stores to help the food pantry buy enough food to help feed local families.  At Proceed Innovative, we are proud to be one of the businesses that have contributed to this cause with a monetary donation.  We have a great relationship with our client Mid-West Moving & Storage and we are always happy to help them with their annual food drives. Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive Details The goal of the Fill A Truck Virtual Food Drive is to help Mid-West Moving & Storage raise enough money for the Elk Grove Presbyterian Church Food Pantry to “Fill-A-Truck” with food...
