HELP KEEP CHICAGO'S PARKS CLEAN & GREEN
The Chicago Parks Foundation's Park Service Days program connects local companies to the heart of our communities - our parks! With over 600 parks and 26 miles of lakefront, we'll coordinate a park improvement project that's a perfect match for your team. Volunteering in our neighborhood parks helps to keep them clean and beautiful, and provides a unique opportunity for your employees to work together outdoors. Join us!
