Chicago young alumni volunteer day at Farmers Market
The Chicago Young Alumni Network is teaming up with the Experimental Station in August to assist at the 61st Street Farmers Market on the south side of Chicago. Experimental Station has worked to increase access to and affordability of fresh and healthy food for all residents in Chicago’s Woodlawn, Hyde Park and surrounding neighborhoods.
Redbird volunteers will provide onsite support to local vendors, help customers load purchases, and assist with the garden space as well as other tasks throughout the market. The earlier timeslot has the most need so consider meeting the group bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Don’t forget to wear Redbird gear!
Two shifts will be available, 7:30 a.m. – noon or 9:00 a.m. – noon. on August 4. If you’re interested in volunteering, sign up by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 31 online or by contacting Alumni Engagement- Chicago Office at (309) 438-3500.
