PODS Chicago Charitable Partnerships
Northern Illinois Food Bank
“Since 2008 PODS of Chicago, LLC has worked with many of Northern Illinois Food Bank’s community partners to assist with the pick up of local food collection efforts. They help transport food drive donations quickly so that we can get it to people who so desperately need it. We value the sincere effort put forth by their staff to help us help our hungry neighbors.”

The Salvation Army
"You did a wonderful job for us. We weren't too sure how to handle all of our possessions, until we ran across your company. Your company was a real blessing to us when we needed it. Thank you so much! We're still getting settled in, but we're loving the new building. Thanks again & hope you & yours have a wonderful Holiday season."
- Linda Rager, The Salvation Army Office Manager
Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity
"I wanted to thank you and your staff for all of the help and your kind donation of services that were provided to assist the Habitat for Humanity/Exelon weatherization project. Without the use of the PODS containers and deliveries this project could not have been nearly as successful and streamlined as it turned out. Jake Switzer and the rest of your team would always available to make our setup possible and also went the extra mile when complications arose that threatened the success of the project. With your help we were able to help 22 families throughout the Chicago area to make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable for the upcoming winter and for years to come. It was a pleasure to work with you and we appreciate your continued support of Habitat for Humanity."
- Dale McClelland, Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity Weatherization coordinator
