822 Buy-a-Brick Campaign

Leave a lasting legacy at the ASSH Central Office by participating in our 822 Buy-a-Brick Campaign. Make a donation to any bucket of the AFSH, and your name and/or chosen text will display on a brass plate on the beautiful brick walls inside of the ASSH Office at 822 West Washington Boulevard in Chicago.

Purchased in June of 2012, the ASSH office building is located in the trendy West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. It houses all 22 ASSH staff members and is a gathering spot for ASSH committees, leaders and other volunteers. Its colorful, innovative style has drawn admiration from volunteers and associations alike.

The 107-year-old building is now beautifully renovated and will last a lifetime as the Hand Society’s home base. Now, for the first time, we’re celebrating the legacy of 822 and allowing ASSH members to create a legacy of their own. Campaign limited to 822 total bricks.
