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.
Thank you to all that came out to our Volunteer Meet & Greet at DuSable Museum on Sunday February 19th. We had nearly 500 individuals come out and support us from 100 different locations across this city and state.
