Related Midwest Shows Gratitude to Construction Workers by Donating 800 Turkeys at Chicago Building Sites

CHICAGO (Nov. 21, 2017) – In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Chicago-based Related Midwest donated over 800 turkeys yesterday to construction workers on its three active Chicago developments: One Bennett Park in Streeterville; Lathrop, along the north branch of the Chicago River on the city’s Northwest Side; and Landmark West Loop, near the Illinois Medical District on the southern end of the West Loop. Executives and employees from Related Midwest visited each of the three sites to bag and gift turkeys, and to personally thank the on-site construction teams.

“As one of the city’s most active developers, we wanted to start this holiday tradition as a way to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the contractors who are instrumental in realizing our vision for each project,” said Don Biernacki, Related Midwest’s senior vice president of construction. “We’re proud of our longstanding partnerships with the industry’s top construction professionals whose tireless efforts – especially during these colder fall and winter months – keep our developments moving forward on schedule and on budget.”

2017 marks the inaugural year for Related Midwest’s Thanksgiving turkey giveaway.
