This is one of the most popular Christmas events on One Brick's calendar. Volunteer spots are very limited.
It's the annual holiday lights festival at Lincoln Park Zoo! One Brick volunteers will be making arts and crafts with the kids and adult visitors in the Monkey House! There will be a lot of interaction with the public, and you get to play with the monkeys behind the glass windows! We will make Christmas ornaments, reindeer headbands, animal puppets, xmas tattoos, etc.) Volunteers will also have time to take breaks to go outside to enjoy the animated zoo lights and get some hot chocolate or cider.
Free parking validation for volunteers.
Please RSVP at this link if you plan to join us so we can get an accurate count on who is coming. If you want to bring a guest, have them register individually on the event page. http://chicago.onebrick.org/event/?eventid=14138
In keeping with One Brick tradition, after the event, volunteers will be going out to a restaurant near by to eat and drink and get to know each other. This is optional but a very fun way to meet great people with similar interest in supporting our community and learn about other amazing volunteer opportunities. It will be a fun way to spend a holiday evening, while helping children and cute animals.
One Brick Chicago chapter is 100% volunteer operated, with very little overhead and no pay staff. We don't even have a physical office.
One Brick is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Federal ID:[masked]) that brings volunteers together to support other local non-profits by adopting an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering, and after each volunteer event -- which typically lasts only 3 to 4 hours -- we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or café where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting. You can sign up or find many volunteer opportunities at http://www.onebrick.org
