You can do a lot in three hours on a Saturday morning. You could even transform a school. The Big Shoulders Fund Auxiliary Board hosts Give Back Days six times a year that are held from 9 am till noon at different Big Shoulders Fund schools around the city of Chicago.
Our schools have a lot of history. Most are over 100 years old and have limited janitorial staff to keep them looking their best. Give Back Day Participants help out with cleaning, painting, organizing, landscaping and more. It’s amazing what a motivated group of people can accomplish in a single morning.
You can come by yourself, or with an alumni group, sharing parishes, companies or other clubs. The more volunteers, the larger the impact.
Plus it’s a great way to meet new people, see our schools and learn more about how the Big Shoulders Fund is helping the inner-city Chicago Catholic schools to thrive and prosper.
Feel free to bring friends or use these events as ways to bring together your alumni groups, clubs, parishes, companies, family or a group of friends! Together we can help these schools to continue to provide a safe and invigorating learning environment for years to come. If you are interested in joining us please contact Colleen Dugo.
