Anixter Center, one of the largest nonprofits in the Chicago area serving people with disabilities, honored philanthropist and businessman Chris Kennedy at its annual Spring Benefit on May 16. Themed “Access for All,” the evening raised funds to help children, teens, and adults with disabilities through programs that include employment training and job placement, residential services, and health care. Nearly 100 years old, Anixter Center has a long history of helping others. Today, many of Anixter Center’s clients have more than one disability and the vast majority have incomes below the poverty line. anixter.org
