On Saturday, April 29th 2017 NEWH Chicago teamed up with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago for a day of community service. Rebuilding Together is an organization that improves the homes and neighborhoods of people in need so they may continue to live in warmth, safety and comfort. Our 40+ volunteers were able to paint the entire apartment, install new carpet, replace a hot water heater, repair faulty electrical outlets, repair a broken water line, replace two exterior doors/locksets, and provide new furniture for the living room. NEWH Chicago community service volunteers made a huge impact on National Rebuilding Day. We were able to transform the appearance and function of the home in short amount of time. Those who participated were grateful to work with such a lovely family and happy to see that they’re enjoying their renovated space! A big thank you to all of our 2017 Rebuilding Together volunteers as well as JLF, Tai Ping, Designtex, Mr. David’s, and Fabtex for their generous sponsorship which made this day of #rebuilingtogether a reality. #newhchicago #volunteer #givingback

November 5, 2014. We hosted our first NEWH Chicago Student Hospitality Roundtable. We had attendance of 28 students and two professors in addition to our seven industry experts (interior design, international interior design, procurement, hospitality management, hospitality branding and culinary). Students were divided into groups that rotated to the experts tables for 12 minute sessions.  The event was held at the DL Couch showroom at the Merchandise Mart in early evening hours with a light dinner provided.  We had a simple exit survey to gauge the effectiveness of the event and received outstanding marks from attendees.  Of 23 respondents the event rated an average of 9.363 on a scale of 1- 10.  The comments ranged from desiring more time with experts to complimenting us on the great variety of experts and how welcoming they were to mentioning the fact that they had no idea there were so many opportunities in the hospitality industry. We will definitely hold this event in the future and feel the first week of November worked well in addition to the venue.
