Volunteer & Earn Apparel

In an effort to promote more volunteering in Chicago, we're taking it upon ourselves to incentivize some action.  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 MBMHMC t-shirt or hoodie. All you have to do is print this card out (or pick one up at one of our events), spend 16 hours volunteering in a year with MBMHMC or any of our partner organizations, have the organization’s staff member sign off on your number of hours served and then you earn a free MBMHMC T-shirt, spend 30 hours volunteering in a year and get a free hoodie!  This incentive is our way of showing appreciation to our volunteers for doing what's right.
