CHICAGO BRIDGE PROJECT

Image_201907181416

On our Saturday Service Days we gather in Logan Square and prepare food, clothing and other comfort items to share with our unhoused neighbors in Chicago. Our Service Day continues as we transport everything and volunteers to our sharing site - usually in Garfield Park or downtown. We then share the love with our neighbors experiencing scarcity. If we're downtown that means walking with wagons and carts; in Garfield Park we serve at the corner of Madison and Keeler and we're usually done before 4 pm. As a Service Day Volunteer you'll be preparing and packaging food, sorting clothing, making greeting cards and comfort kits and making everything ready for sharing in the afternoon, going along for the ride and then helping redistribute our resources. We'd love for you to join us for any part or all of the day. Please visit our volunteer sign-up page at https://chicagobridgeproject.org/volunteer and thank you!

Mission Statement

The Chicago Bridge Project builds community by sharing warm food and clothing with our most vulnerable neighbors.

Description

The Chicago Bridge Project is a food and clothing rescue that collects excess ingredients and foodstuffs from restaurants and events and clothing from laundries and dry cleaners. We meet once a month to sort the clothing, prepare a delicious meal, and create hand-made greeting cards and comfort kits of toiletries and other niceties. We package up the meal courses in single serving containers, load up our cars with food and clothing and head out to meet our neighbors in need. We engage them where they are - on the street - and offer friendship, community, clothing and a meal prepared with love.
