Perry Mandera’s motto has always been to give back to the communities his organization serves. His Custom Companies organization mainly focuses on transportation issues. He also does a lot of charity work and supports the Illinois State Crime Commission in its efforts to get youth off the streets.
His military experience gained Mandera the skills he needed to start his own business. Custom Companies Inc, started in 1986, was designed to create jobs within the Chicago area. Chicago was and still is a transportation hub. The jobs Mandera created when he started Custom Companies helped lift people out of the cycle of poverty.
Mandera’s passion for the youth of Chicago was a driving force for the creation of Custom Cares Charities. This 501(c)3 organization provides support for many youth groups and organizations in the Chicago area. The work Mandera and his organization have done to help young people get out of a life of crime garnered him the Bishop Shell Award in 2010.
The Illinois State Crime Commission (ISCC) also awarded Mandera with the Citizen of the Year Award in 2011. Meeting people with transportation needs is a big part of his commitment to communities his company serves. He has an open heart when it comes to fellow veterans. Some of the courses that the ISCC provides help police officers gain knowledge with firearms and event security.
Chicago communities appreciate Mandera’s passion for youth sports and martial arts. Mandera coached youth baseball, basketball, and football teams. By giving the youth of Chicago many opportunities to shine, Mandera has lifted people up and showed them the right path.
