Summer Fun : : Art Kit Volunteering + More

The Chicago Park District is welcoming 4,000 campers for a summer unlike any other. Park Staff have done an amazing job quickly planning summer activities under new safety protocols but have limited supplies for art activities.   We're helping them out with "Art Kits" so campers can use creativ


e reuse to make their own Imagination Journals, Zero-Waste Weaving, Shape Robots, Recyclo-Pouches and more... 


Art Kit Volunteers: Help us organize and assemble fun art kits to distribute to summer campers at Parks across the city!    Tuesdays & Thursdays from 1pm-5pm  Dates:  July 7, 9, 14, 16, 21 and 23
