Volunteer at Homeless Outreach Luncheon

This is the first in a series of holiday events at the Center that will help make the holidays a little brighter for everyone in the community. The event not only feeds the homeless, but also aims to help “winterize” them. Our guests receive winter essentials such as thermal underwear, coats, hats, gloves, and toiletries. Clients also have the opportunity to speak with healthcare providers, housing agencies, and job training facilitators, all of whom assist with social service needs. This year, the event will also feature access to dental care and personal hygiene services such as manicures and haircuts.

We need volunteers to help assist guests, distribute materials and serve lunch, as well as help with event take-down. We invite volunteers to share a Thanksgiving with the guests as well. Parking is limited for the event, so we encourage volunteers to take public transportation. Because of the nature of the event, we require volunteers to RSVP.

    An absolutely amazing experience. My guests were awesome, the food was tasty, and I was overwhelmed by the amount of resources for the guests. Will definitely return next year!

    Very well organized - although I didn't find any of the Chicago Fun Volunteers. And they didn't know we were coming.

    I missed all of you, except for Mia. I wish the organizer had a sign to bring us together.

      We're right by the entrance, by the clock in a table with the nuns. If you can come by we'll be here.

    Is there a specific place to check in tomorrow morning, the email wasn't descriptive, are we associated with a specific group or....?

    Hi there! I just changed my RSVP at the last moment, thus I am unable to attend. If anyone is interested, please take my spot. Sorry and thanks!

  • Janet

    Hi Arika, my friend could not attend so changed my RSVP from +2 to +1; hence, there is one spot open. :)

    Hi, the event says there is one spot left? Can I still attend?

  • Gina

    Hi, I know it's late & I already told my friend no but, I figured it never hurts to double check. Would there be anyway that I'm able to brig my friend Christina with me? She's interested in volunteering & Seemed very interested in helping out with me. Please let me know when you can.

    I'd love to help!! Thanks!

  • Steven D. R.

    I'm volunteering and I'm adding a guest. If my guest RSVP's, which I think she will, then I'll drop the guest. Don't want her to be counted twice.

    I VERY MUCH WANT TO HELP, BUT IF I COULD GET A RIDE THERE AND BACK, IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL. I LIVE IN SOUTH CHICAGO NEAR 83RD AND EXCHANGE.
