Community Involvement

Life is about giving back and Kevin, along with his family and planning team, deeply value the opportunity to support charitable and community causes.

Kevin donates his time as a member of United Sertoma-Lemont Charter.

“Sertoma exists for the high and noble purpose of SERvice TO MAnkind by communication of thoughts, ideas and concepts to accelerate human progress in health, education, freedom and democracy.”

Lemont Sertoma in Lemont, Illinois is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization chartered in 1996 by a group of dedicated individuals who had a desire to help those in need of assistance in their Lemont community. Over the past seventeen years, our organization has grown and the need has become greater. In response to this, we recently changed our name to United Sertoma to service not only families and individuals in Lemont, but to reach out and assist those in Lockport and Homer Glen as well.

The club has distributed over $475,000 to local causes in Lemont and surrounding communities over the past nineteen years. Some of our charitable contributions include; Sertoma Speech & Hearing Center, Sertoma Career Center, Shady Oaks Camp for People with Disabilities, Holistic Riding Equestrian Therapy via establishing a scholarship fund to help assist riders with financial limitations, White Sox Miracle Field in Lemont, Lemont Food Pantries, Lockport F.I.S.H. Food Pantry, Lemont & Lockport High School Scholarship Program, Little Mountain Community Theatre Super Hero Camp, SEASPAR, and many more.

Kevin and his team, in conjunction with the Northwestern Mutual Chicagoland office, have supported:

Feed My Starving Children

As a Christian non-profit organization, Feed My Starving Children is called to feed God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. You will hear us say this again and again: “We want to reach everyone, until ALL are fed.” We truly mean this. This means reaching the hard-to-reach people and places, the “least of these.” They will be found, and they will be fed. With God’s help we will work together with organizations and ministries across the globe to end hunger.
