Last year, under his direction, the program benefited approximately 300 children and raised more than $3,000 for South Side Mission.

He has previously volunteered as a Big Brother, served on the Bowl For Kids’ Sake Committee, sat on the Peoria Area Chamber’s Membership Committee, helped organize the Arthritis Foundation’s annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk, and chaired the committee that implemented the foundation’s first Reindeer Dash, a children’s run that increased participation and proceeds for the entire Jingle Bell event.

In 2008, he earned pro bono notation as a law student, donating his legal services to the City of Chicago as it revised its building code, which included green initiatives to protect the environment and improve quality of life in the city. iBi
