Edgeville Buzz

Northside day of service

Monday, January 18, 2009 from 9AM to 3PM

Last year, President Obama asked the nation to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, with a day of community service. Locally, our event in Edgewater hosted over 300 volunteers. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2010, please join elected officials and local organizations for a day of service to our community. During the day, projects will include assisting seniors with shoveling and winterizing their homes, painting rooms at a local school, and several other repair and clean up projects for local non-profits and people in need. Projects are available for participants of any age.

Participants are also encouraged to bring gently used winter clothing and unused personal care products to distribute to local non-profit organizations.

There will be two starting locations
– 48th Ward Service Office – 5533 N. Broadway, Chicago, IL 60640 and
– 47th Ward Service Office – 4237 N. Lincoln, Chicago, IL 60625
