This ends the second year of the Skender Foundation supporting Chicago-area education and wellness charities.

This December, Skender Foundation members bought toys, books and music for children making the transition from hospital to the home environment. They also delivered them to centers in Chicago and Naperville, Ill.

In 2013, the Skender Foundation has contributed nearly $200,000 to 50 local organizations.
