Improving the literacy of all the young students in the Chicago public school system is a goal we should all share.

Tunnell Insurance Agency, a full service insurance firm with offices serving the greater Chicago area, is launching a joint charity effort with Working in the Schools (WITS), an organization that promotes and facilitates reading and literacy among elementary level public school students.

For over 20 years the WITS Organization has promoted literacy and the love of reading among young students in the Chicago school system by offering one-on-one tutoring and mentoring. The goal of WITS volunteers is to proudly serve the Chicago public school system and to take pride in the quality of the literacy programs offered to elementary students, as well as to foster the continued success of the program via active involvement with the local community.

John Tunnell, owner and operator of the Tunnell Insurance Agency, has been a longtime supporter of the WITS organization. “Working with the fine folks at WITS has been a privilege, and improving the literacy of all the young students in the Chicago public school system is a goal we should all share,” says Tunnell.

In an effort to improve the footprint of the WITS program, the Tunnell Insurance Agency is performing a charity drive to increase awareness of the program with parents and families throughout the area, as well as seeking donations from like-minded community members. Further efforts are underway to create a social media presence that will help to draw in support from all over Illinois and across the country.

In addition to working to improve the literacy of young people by promoting and fundraising for the WITS organization, Tunnell and his team are actively involved with several other local charities throughout the Chicago area, and plan to work with at least one new charity every 30-60 days as time passes. “We’re doing everything we can to promote positive change all across Chicago,” says Tunnell.
