GTI helps our neighbors in need through various voluntary actions that reflect our culture, our values, and the way we do business.
Annual Food Drives. GTI hosts a food drive several times a year to help stock the local food pantry, the Self-Help Closet & Pantry of Des Plaines. The Pantry distributes food to over 1,000 individuals and families every month, feeding the area’s hungry children, elderly, working poor, unemployed, chronically ill, and homeless.
“Toys for Tots” Campaign. GTI participates in a U.S. Marine Corps sponsored program, providing gifts to disadvantaged children throughout metropolitan Chicago.
United Way Campaign. Through an annual payroll deduction campaign, we support a national movement to create a brighter future or those in need.
LifeSource. Each year we sponsor several onsite blood drives at our headquarters.
The GTI Community Garden. Volunteers grow organic vegetables at our office, sell the produce to employees, and donate the proceeds to the Self-Help Closet & Pantry of Des Plaines.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. Corporate Challenge. GTI employees take part in the annual 3.5 mile Chicago race that benefits two local not-for-profit organizations, the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Chicago Run.
