Hi Sloopin,One my new years resolutions is to give back more, so I have been looking for some place to volunteer. I am not aware of many organizations that are active in the neighborhood and I'm hoping that you and your readers can help. As a working professional, I am looking for something that has evening or weekend volunteer hours. I tried looking at Chicago Cares but they didn't seem to have much in our neighborhood. I like the idea of working at children, immigrants or adult education, but really I'm open to anything. Are there any volunteer opportunities that I can try?
This is the type of email we love to see at Sloopin! First off, last year we did a post about literacy tutors at the Mercy Housing Lakefront building at 1521 S. Wabash. That might be a good option.
Does anyone else have some ideas for reader with great intentions?
Good luck and thanks for the email.
