  • Goldberg Kohn and principal Gerald Jenkins provide valuable business and legal counsel.
  • Verizon Wireless, our official wireless and broadband provider, outfitted us with mobile telephone service, Blackberry devices and BroadbandAccess Air Cards so we can connect to anyone at anywhere and anytime.
  • IBM provided us with robust computer servers and hardware to help Green Street Project and Openhill.com fulfill our pledge to provide website services to Chicago-area community projects.
  • Elite Truck Rental provides us reliable trucks and vans to safely transport donated equipment.
