White Sox Volunteer Corps: Day of Service
May 9, 2012
On Saturday, May 12, hundreds of White Sox Volunteer Corp members, including current White Sox players and front office staff, will come together to participate in the “White Sox Day of Service,” in partnership with City Year.
This year’s major Volunteer Corps service event will take place at Kozminski Community Academy, a K through 8 public school in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, which is in need of significant improvement and refurbishment. Members of the White Sox Volunteer Corps participating in the event will be painting walls, halls and murals, building benches and bookcases, cleaning playground areas, among other service activities.
Anyone who has participated in White Sox Volunteer Corps events in the past understands the significance and value a day of service can provide the community. The completed work will help provide a better, more conducive learning atmosphere for children facing difficult socio-economic situations, as well as help the school improve its facilities without impacting the budget.
Volunteer Corps members will be shuttled to the school from Lot C of U.S. Cellular Field. The Opening Ceremony at Kozminski begins at 9:00 a.m. and work is scheduled to finish at 2:00 p.m. Lunch and water will be provided.
