Chicago’s largest day of service is coming up on June 23rd! Thousands of people across Chicago come together for this event to help Chicago Public Schools in saving facility improvement costs by having volunteers complete projects that involve activities such as gardening, painting walls, building benches, etc.
All volunteers meet at The Daley Plaza in the morning for breakfast, check-in, and instructions, then we are transported to our volunteer sites by a bus assigned to our group. Since there is a set time the buses leave for the volunteer sites, punctuality is crucial for this event. Please arrive early enough to give yourself time to check-in, eat breakfast, and meet up with the group.
There is a cost of $15 for the event, but this goes towards cost of materials, transportation, breakfast, lunch, and the post-event party that includes dinner and beer.
Our team is listed as “TAP-Chicago”, so be sure to register under this team name so everyone in our group is at the same volunteer site. Registration closes June 18th, so sign up a.s.a.p!
We have also set up a fundraiser separately as extra help with the cost of this cause and for their future volunteer opportunities. If you’d like to contribute, it’d be awesome if you could do it through our campaign “TAP Chicago”.
Special Instructions: Recommended clothing is casual and comfortable, you may be on your feet for much or the whole time.
Hope to see you there!

Join TAP-Chicago and KACC as we volunteer at Korean Senior’s Day. We will serve over 600 participants in 2 shifts Saturday morning and afternoon. Volunteer duties include greeting, guiding seniors, packing and passing out lunch boxes, handling raffle prizes, and more. Free delicious Korean lunch & t-shirts will be provided!
Why volunteer? Korean American senior citizens face linguistic, cultural and economic barriers and often suffer from social isolation and depression in everyday life away from their home country. Each year, the festival hosts Korean American seniors and their families for a day of recognition and celebration. The highlight of the event is performances of local, international, and senior artists in the Cultural Art Program. The event is primarily sponsored by donations from local business owners.
