Chicago Cares' Serve-a-thon Volunteers Paint, Plant, Spruce Up Kinzie School

Many thanks to the more than 180 "Chicago Cares" volunteers who helped plant, paint and generally spruce up Kinzie School earlier this month.

Brief video highlights are posted on the Southwest Chicago Post channel on YouTube:

And thanks to our friends at the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch organization for alerting us and many others in the community to the event.

If you missed the event but still want to help the boys and girls of Kinzie School, please call Assistant Principal Jonathan Keith at (773) 535-2422. You don't have to swing a hammer, a paint brush or a shovel to help. Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to serve, for people of all ages and abilities.

  1. As a teacher at Kinzie, I just want to say thank you to all those who participated. We really appreciated all their hard work and effort and the school and grounds look so much nicer since their visit.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing the amazing work of our Serve-a-thon volunteers. We love to see the impact that can be made when we all work together to build a stronger Chicago!
