communities in which they work and live.

This month we highlight the Christy Webber Landscapes team on their "Giving Back Service Project" for the Chicago Fire Department. Ten of their employees volunteered to transform and beautify the landscape at the historic Streeterville Firehouse, Engine Company 98. Using a rendering created by their designers, the volunteers enjoyed cleaning and installing various trees, grasses, shrubs and plants to embellish the landscape surrounding the firehouse monument.
While continuing to protect and service our city, the team of Engine 98 showed appreciation by educating and providing lunch for Christy Webber employees. Their team couldn't have asked for a more honorable and fulfilling experience!
Great job Christy Webber Landscapes! Thanks for sharing!
