Trunk Club Donates $15,000 to Employees’ Favorite Charities

Chicago, Ill., Jan. 14, 2019 -- During the holiday season, Trunk Club, a personal styling service, ran an employee directed giving campaign, where employees voted to allocate $15,000 to their three favorite

“We designed this program to engage our employees while making a thoughtful impact in the communities we serve,” said Victoria Peterson, Head of Human Resources at Trunk Club. “We were overwhelmed with the positive response from our employees, who nominated and campaigned for their favorite organizations with pride and enthusiasm, and from the recipient organizations.”

Employees selected the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago as the $10,000 winning organization. St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the Alzheimer’s Association were the next most voted organizations and will receive $2,500.

“We are all truly overjoyed by Trunk Club’s generosity and friendship to the shelter. Friends like this truly make an immediate—and a significant—difference in the lives of neglected animals,” said Christine Natarelli, special events manager at the Anti-Cruelty Society. “We are proud and honored to say that no other animal welfare organization in Illinois impacts the community quite so extensively. At The Anti-Cruelty Society, we rescue animals that were abandoned, we teach young people about responsible pet ownership, we provide a charity veterinary clinic for the public, and we find homes for over 5,000 animals each year.”

Last week, the five nominating employees visited the Anti-Cruelty Society, a neighbor to Trunk Club Chicago, to present the check and to visit with the animals. Several of the nominating employees have adopted pets from the center.
