The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, is a nonprofit food distribution and training center providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. We naturally aligned with their mission, and began holding food drives at The Publican in2008. While much of One Off’s charitable contributions are given at the administrative level, partnering with the Greater Chicago Food Depository allows our team to participate in giving directly.

The Lynn Sage Foundation
The Lynn Sage Foundation was founded in honor and memory of Lynn Sage, a beloved mother, daughter and wife who tragically died at the age of 39 as a result of her battle with breast cancer. We support the Lynn Sage Foundation in honor of the women in our company who are proud breast cancer survivors. Dedicated to finding a cure for this disease, The Foundation funds The Lynn Sage Scholars program, which funds promising researchers in the field of breast cancer that are working in Chicago. Scholars are given $100,000 per year for up to two years to conduct research that focuses on the prevention, treatment, and, ultimately, finding a cure for breast cancer.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. We proudly participate in the foundation’s Dine to End MS in memory of Kimberly Galban’s mother. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. The Society envisions a world free of MS and moves toward that end by driving change through fundraising, advocacy, facilitating education, collaborating with others and by providing helpful programs and services.
