​Corporate Citizenship

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.
