Local Organization Dedicated to Cleaning Up Chicago And Neighboring Areas

Jennifer Brown Banks

In this day and age of activism, many of us struggle with what we can do to make a positive impact in our communities and the city in which we live.

There's no doubt about it. We may not readily have the financial resources to contribute to worthy causes that mirror our values, or big chunks of time to devote to long-term projects with ongoing voluntary needs. So by default, too often we end up doing nothing. The end result? Problems that continue to plague our neighborhoods, our schools, our churches, and our social programs.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Needs a Few Extra Hands


This group is a clean-up program for parks and streets in Illinois, purposed to beautify communities and foster pride in our neighborhoods. Their website shares the following about their organizational focus: "We will seek out locations most in need if your group does not have a place in mind. We provide safety vests, trash pickup utensils, trash bags, gloves and water. We co-ordinate with government officials and post official signage during the campaign to make your Volunteer Day a great success. We ensure proper removal of trash. Corporate and group donations directly fund our general operating expenses and our mission."
