Lazarus House 2014 Calendar
Category: Graphic Design
St. Charles, Ill.-based Lazarus House, a not-for-profit shelter and transitional housing program serving men, women and children in the Tri-Cities and western rural Kane County, needed assistance designing and producing an annual calendar for their staff and board members as a small token of appreciation for their dedication to this worthy cause. With limited resources, Lazarus House reached out to CHI for assistance. CHI supports a number of local organizations and charities in the Fox Valley area throughout the year, including Lazarus House, as part of the agency’s philosophy of giving back to the local community.
Working on a pro-bono basis, CHI designed a year-at-a-glance wall calendar which included a collage of pictures from various fundraising activities conducted by Lazarus House. CHI also coordinated with the local AlphaGraphics printer in St. Charles to produce the calendars at no cost. The 2014 is the third annual calendar CHI has designed for Lazarus House.
Because the calendars were designed and produced at no cost, Lazarus House was able to redirect the funds originally allocated for the calendar project back to their efforts to provide hospitality, food safe shelter and support to people in need from the local community.
