WBEZ and Chicago Cares
We at WBEZ seek to make a positive impact in Chicago with both news and stories. Now with the support of Chicago Cares
, the city’s leading service organization, we'll launch our first ever Day of Service
featuring service projects with a range of non-profits across the region. Scheduled service projects run from Wednesday, May 29, to Saturday, June 1, and range from projects with Children's Home + Aid, Flannery Apartments, Greater Chicago Food Depository
and the People’s Music School
among others. Host seniors at a birthday party, dig in the dirt to create a garden, build shelves for students or paint a mural with the direction of an artist. A range of service projects are available.
Saturday, June 1st, all volunteers and the public are invited to join in an evening of storytelling co-presented by The Moth, the hottest storytelling event series in Chicago. It’s a competitive StorySLAM featuring five minute stories from folks who sign up that night at the event. The theme is WHEN I HELPED.
Top this off with a performance by the Blue Ribbon Glee Club and the first Goose Island Green Line on the house for Day of Service volunteers at Schubas, 5-7pm in the Schubas backyard.
Evening celebration and concert is FREE for Day of Service participants (you will be sent an RSVP link).
$15, $12 for WBEZ Members or $10 for students with valid I.D.
