Our Hortons family strongly believes in making a difference and giving back to the communities we serve. Perhaps our biggest example of this is the foundation which was started here at the store when two employees passed away from cancer. Since its inception in 2001, The H Foundation has raised nearly $9 million to support basic science cancer research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University. We are also supporters of the Children's Miracle Network, our local high school's Transitions Program, Local Makers of innovative products, the local movie theater, local Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and many other local charities. If giving back and being a part of an organization that is making a difference is something important to you…join us!
