IamA volunteer, I started an organization that takes teenagers from under-resourced community areas on educational field trips. A lot of Chicago teens have never been downtown nor seen the Lake. This reality is tragic.”My Social Impact Org
Today 65 people from 40 different communities shoveled for seniors on Chicago’s south side. Thank you all for showing up for a more interconnected Chicago. Want to support our mission but can’t make it out? Go to My Block My Hoo d My City at formyblock.org/inventory
