Bulk Lift is a proud member of the local community, working to make it a better place.
Bulk Lift partners with The Knights of Columbus and a number of local businesses every year to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for local families. This program has grown from providing food for 200 families at Thanksgiving time to now almost 1,500 families for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Over 250 people come every year to help pack the food and distribute to families in the area, and we also help by raising several thousand dollars to assist the effort.
Not one dime of Government funds were used and no one from a Governmental agency was needed to make this work. We can feed those in need and serve our community without the intervention of the government!
The women of Bulk Lift lead the way in being a part of the Bunco for Breast Cancer Event, an event in Crystal Lake that has raised over a quarter of a million dollars for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. In addition to being a fun time for all participants, those in attendance who have survived breast cancer are recognized and their inspirational stories told.
Bulk Lift also frequently supports the Pioneer Center for Human Services, a non-profit located in McHenry that provides direct services to more than 2,500 individuals. The organization also provides education and outreach to schools and community organizations reaching over 10,000 additional individuals.
Our employees also continue to participate in the “Pedal (or Walk!) for PADS” held in McHenry. Money raised for PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) helps hundreds of homeless people down on their luck and in need of help to get back on their feet. They are provided with shelter, food, interviewing skills, clothing, toiletries, and other necessities that many of us take for granted.
