To all those who participated in the 21st Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon: You should be very proud. Because of you, Chicago is stronger and more vibrant. Because of you, life will be better for thousands of people.

Daniel Burnham, the master architect of our city, forever reminds us to “make no little plans,” and I hope that your commitment to service will not end today…

  • Sign up for one of our 250 monthly volunteer projects.
  • Share your stories and pictures from the day tagging @ChicagoCares and using #MyChi.
  • Pay it forward. Chicago Cares changes lives—of those served and those who serve. Funding allows us to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for more than 30,000 people a year…people just like you, who want to give their time and talent to making our city a better place.

Thank you for your energy, your commitment and your service.

Jenné Myers

Executive Director
