Registration for the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon closes exactly one week from today. Over the past 20 years, this incredible event has mobilized tens of thousands of volunteers to serve in every neighborhood of our city. I hope that you will join this legacy of service.
Your contributions at Serve-a-thon will have a lasting impact on the communities we serve. You will not just prepare a meal for seniors; you will foster community and reduce isolation and depression. You will not just clean up a park; you will cultivate a beautiful space for community members to come together. You will not just paint a classroom; you will enrich a learning environment that will inspire students for years to come.

Our city has many challenges, but it also has great people like you willing to step up and make a difference. Together, let’s be the solution.

If you have not already, please register for our 20th Annual Serve-a-thon today! Chelsea Clinton will be kicking off our Opening Ceremony on June 15, and it’s sure to be an exciting, rewarding day.

Bridget Altenburg is the Executive Director of Chicago Cares.
