Who: Assurance employees volunteered with Chicagoland Special Spaces, funding and completely re-doing a local teenager’s bedroom. Special Spaces is a nonprofit that creates dream bedrooms for children with life-threatening medical illnesses. They create a space where the child can dream and imagine while addressing their medical needs.
What: Assurance spent the day re-doing a bedroom for Hannah, a sweet 14-year-old girl who's in remission from a rare form of cancer. Every member of the Assurance ‘A’ Team stayed to watch Hannah’s reaction to the bedroom reveal. The group was at a loss for words as Hannah was overjoyed to make new memories in her stylish purple bedroom.
The complete makeover entailed:
- Redoing Hannah’s entire bedroom
- Assembling three furniture sets
- Creating various décor items
- Sewing drapes for Hannah’s windows
When: Thursday, September 7, 2017
Where: Hannah’s Home
