Many Hands Made Light Work

June 5, 2013

Last week - from Wednesday to Saturday - hundreds of WBEZ and Vocalo listeners banded together with our partners at Chicago Cares and 18 other Champions to participate in our very first Day of Service.  Volunteers paved new areas for beautification, painted school murals and displays, planted gardens in needed areas, cleaned community homes and had a party for a group of assisted living seniors.  It was astounding.  They were astounding.

The pictures (photo credit: Jerry Schulman) taken tell a story of enthusiatic service and a spirit of undampened hope:

Following the nearly weeklong event, we all headed over to Schuba's for a special MOTH StorySlam and a set from the Blue Ribbon Glee Club.

 
 
 
 
And with that, we close out the Off Air Series for this year and head into planning a whole new roster of incredible events for our listening audience to crawl out of their cars and homes and gyms and enjoy!
