Another Holiday season is in full swing at JBS! This year, we have spent time volunteering and donating to two very special causes: CIACO (Chicago Italian American Charitable Organization) and LivingWell Cancer Resource Center.
Each Thanksgiving CIACO (Chicago Italian American Charitable Organization) donates more than 600 “baskets of love” to 600 families that are truly in need. Each box consisting of a frozen turkey, many different canned and bottled items to prepare a complete Thanksgiving meal! In our photos featured, you can see the JBS truck getting loaded in Bensenville with 600 turkeys to be shipped to a Bouna Beef warehouse in Cicero. Once at the Bouna Beef warehouse, hundreds of volunteers from CIACO and other businesses will create 600 large cartons and fill each one with all the ingredients.
JBS National Account Manager, Dan Mastropieri, and his family helped unload and pack the “baskets of love”. After filling boxes with stuffing and ketchup bottles, Dan’s 7 year old Nico takes a well deserved break!
LivingWell Resource Center
JBS is proud of our continued efforts of Corporate Responsibility to our community. This Holiday Season we decided to commemorate a truly unique organization that helps families deal with cancer. Living Well is a non-profit organization that helps families feel less alone, better informed, more hopeful, and empowered to take on the challenge of facing cancer.
Each sweatshirt, shown here, was gifted from JBS to our respected customers and represents a $2,500 donation made to Living Well in the name of our late dear friend and co-worker, Linda McCreery.

Seasons Greetings to you and yours!
