In an effort to promote more volunteering in Chicago, we're taking it upon ourselves to incentivize some action. Starting with our Woodlawn Clean Up event on August 19th, we'll be issuing Volunteer Cards to everybody. Any person who volunteers at our One Block at a Time Initiative, or any other Chicago organization, will have an opportunity to receive a free t-shirt or hoodie. Spend 16 hours volunteering in a year and get a free T-shirt. Spend 30 hours volunteering in a year and get a free hoodie. The city reflects who we are, and we have a responsibility to what it is. This incentive is our way of showing appreciation to our volunteers for doing what's right.
WGN News: Thank you to everyone who came out and shoveled in Englewood this week. Sometimes It's the simple things. Streets & San can easily become overwhelmed by Mother Nature, and oftentimes our seniors are the last to get the support they need. This is just one way we can change things one block at a time. The change Chicago needs really is inside each of us.
