All Points PR Volunteers at Bernie’s Book Bank for Q1 Positive Impact Program

All Points PR Volunteers at Bernie’s Book Bank for Q1 Positive Impact Program

On Monday, February 24, the All Points PR team volunteered at Bernie’s Book Bank in Lake Bluff, IL for our first quarter Positive Impact.

Bernie’s Book Bank is “the leading provider of quality books to under-served children in the Chicagoland area,” with the belief that “books and reading are both the vehicle and road to a better life.” The organization sources, processes and distributes new and gently used children’s books to help increase book ownership among underserved children, from infants to school age. Six books per child are distributed twice a year for a total of 12 books annually.

The All Points team broke up into groups to help put together individual bags containing six books each. From educational reading to stories featuring popular cartoon characters, each bag featured a variety of books appealing to early childhood readers. Each individual bag was then placed into a tote – once a tote reached 32 bags, it was sent to a loading area for distribution.

Bernie’s Book Bank reports that two out of three children from low-income families don’t have any books of their own. Since its founding in 2009, Bernie’s Book Bank has distributed more than 17 million books, and is on target to distribute 3.6 million books annually to 360,000 underserved children in Chicagoland. 45,000 volunteers are welcomed every year.

The All Points team enjoyed a hands-on opportunity to help impact the literacy crisis in Chicagoland and spread the joy of reading to today’s youth. We strive to positively impact communities in which we live and work through our philanthropic and volunteer efforts with the Positive Impact program. We are passionate about our commitment to corporate social responsibility and making a positive impact on meaningful social, community and environmental organizations. We look forward to our next Positive Impact and the cause we will serve!

The All Points Team Shares Their 2020 New Year’s Resolutions

The All Points Team Shares Their 2020 New Year’s Resolutions

The All Points team has big plans heading into the new year. From traveling and living healthier to continuing education and keeping up with hobbies, our team is looking forward to a fresh year filled with new opportunities to achieve our goals. Check out our 2020 New Year’s resolutions!

Maddy: …to run a marathon in 2020. I knocked out a half-marathon run in 2019, so I’m doubling up in the new year.

Allie: …to create more balance in my life to help me enjoy the little things more.

Lauren: …to find balance.

Tracey: …to hold myself to my morning routine of working out and eating a good breakfast. To read more. And to utilize the beautiful garden area we have at our new house (which means learning how to garden).

Meredith: …to cook more at home instead of taking out. I’d also like to learn a new skill.

Amanda: …to drink more water, keep a consistent morning workout routine, read one book every month and aim for seven or eight hours of sleep every night. I’d also like to spend less time scrolling on my phone and more time talking to loved ones on the phone, and visiting with them in person. Finally, I aim to run a total of at least 500 miles in 2020. 

Annie: …to expand my music library and run a half marathon.

Kate: …to stay off my phone! I find myself scrolling through social media mindlessly not even caring about what I’m looking at, and yet I’m still glued to my phone. I have a lot of family travel coming up in 2020 and less screen time will allow me to be more in the moment and really appreciate my time with them. I’d say my resolution should be to delete Instagram, but let’s be real – I can’t quit cold turkey.

Gautier: …to read more! I enjoy a good page-turner, but never prioritize reading— Netflix always feels easier than starting a new book.

Jessica: …to pursue continued education, read more and travel more.

Cole: …to do a better job of taking care of my physical health through diet and exercise.

Jamie: …to remain clearheaded and fresh. I’m predominantly optimistic, aim for consistent transparency and try to find the best in everyone, yet I’d like to have more wind in my sails everyday. That comes from keeping a clear mind and a fresh start to every day.

Marin: …to use my commute to learn something new. I plan on switching out the same playlist that I listen to every day for some podcasts, both career-related and some fun ones like “Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know.” Any recommendations are welcome!

Jonathan: …to be more positive and optimistic toward any situation I’m faced with. Following the cold season, I also want to spend more time outside every day. It’s important to always get some fresh air.

Rachel: …to make more time for my family throughout the year.

Alex H: …to read at least one book a month and to stop eating Twizzlers every day from the All Points food cabinet.

Jenna: …to make healthier choices, from eating healthier, to getting more exercise and putting more focus on self-care, whatever that means!

Mackenzie: …to grow my professional presentation skills and public speaking skills, drink more water and spend more quality time with loved ones, whether it be making the road trip back home to see family or Facetime dinner dates with friends!

Katie: …to go to bed earlier on a daily basis, travel to new places and worry less!

Spencer: …to learn how to play the banjo. Because I failed to finish my 2019 goal, my resolution to learn how to play the banjo has rolled over to 2020. Hopefully this time around I will be more dedicated and finally be able to pluck a tune.

Bailey: …to keep learning new skills— both personally with continuing tennis lessons and professionally with staying up to date on new trends and best practices related to our everyday work.

Nicole: …to make time for photography projects and get back into music photography. Also, being a more conscious consumer, which for me means not giving into fast fashion and investing money in clothes that are sustainable.

Mia: …to eat healthier by cooking more and to spend more time with family.

Joey: …to wake up earlier to enjoy some morning “me time” — a good cup of coffee and sunshine to fuel my soul.

Alex S: …to spend more time outside! Whether it is through traveling, exercising or changing my usual environment, I want to enjoy more of the outdoors (especially during the few days of nice weather that we have here in Chicago).

Gillian: …to finish the first draft of the novel I am working on and build a small indoor garden this spring.
