City Year Chicago’s annual White Sox Service Day (happening May 12 at Kozminski Academy in Hyde Park) is fast approaching so let’s take a look back at one of City Year Chicago’s most treasured partnerships!
Originally, City Year’s Care Force planned and implemented the service day for the Chicago White Sox, but slowly the service reins were handed over to City Year Chicago. In 2010, City Year Chicago took full ownership over planning and executing the service day for the Chicago White Sox Volunteer Corps. In the three years since then, we have engaged almost 1,500 volunteers in service!
During the 2010-2011 corps year, The Chicago White Sox for the first time became a team sponsor for the City Year Team serving at Paul Robeson High School. This event has always been a great opportunity for City Year and the Chicago White Sox to work together to make the community of Chicago a more beautiful place.
Be sure to check back on Monday when we’ll feature photos from Saturday’s event!
