Perry Manders is the founder and owner of Custom Co. Inc, a business in Chicago that is in the transportation industry. He started his first business in this industry in 1980 and sold it in 1985. It was in February 1986 that he started his new company. His customers range from small business to S&P 500 firms. His team delivers products that can be tracked throughout the entire process using satellite technology.
Beyond his business, Perry Mandera is passionate about giving back. He regularly engages in philanthropy and has given to charities on the local, state, and national levels. In addition to money he also donates his time and business skills to nonprofits. He is a big supporter of children’s and youth organizations as well as those that support military veterans.
A number of years ago, Perry Mandera set up Custom Cares Charities. This is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit through which he provides his donated money. He once used this charity to donate thousands of coats across Chicago during one of its bitter winters. In 2013 a nearby city in Illinois experienced extensive tornado damage. He had his fleet of vehicles deliver supplies and food to families in need in this city.
Perry Mandera also helped out when Hurricane Katrina struck the states of Mississipi and Louisiana (Positivethefacts). In total he sent 40 truckloads that delivered supplies to people in both of these states. Some of the supplies had been donated to Custom Cares Charities while others were supplies that he had purchased. His charity also provided support to the victims of the 2017 California wildfires.
Each holiday season Custom Cares Charities donates cash to families in need to spend on gifts for their children. He also has helped out with youth sports. He has sponsored a number of youth boxers that he has coached, for instance. Two of these Chicago-based boxers went on to compete in the Summer Olympics. He has also coached in other sports such as baseball, basketball, and football.
