Help recruit volunteers for Park Lawn
Park Lawn seeks volunteers to help on the weekend of April 20 and 21 from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm to spread the word about Park Lawn during the Annual Tag Days event.
During Tag Days, volunteers across the city give out information about Park Lawn and collect donations. On average this event helps raise more than $50,000 that directly benefits the programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities at Park Lawn.
Park Lawn has a new tag that will be given to all generous donors with more information about Park Lawn and a way to give through texting. If people don't have cash on them, they can text they phrase GIVEPL to the number 20222 and they can make a simple $5 donation.
Since the first Park Lawn Tag Days in 1982, more than one million dollars has been collected. This is all from loose change and bills throughout the 29 years.
Students often take this opportunity to volunteer for Park Lawn’s Tag Days to receive service hours for school or confirmation.
Safety vests, collection buckets and handouts with Park Lawn’s logo will be provided to all volunteers. Convenient time slots and locations throughout the south suburbs of Chicago are available for everyone. No special training is necessary.
For more information on Tag Days or to schedule a time and location, call the Park Lawn Development Office at 708-425-6867 or visit www.parklawn.com. Park Lawn will be open from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21.
All proceeds from Tag Days benefit Park Lawn, a local non-profit agency located in Chicago’s southwest suburbs that provides vocational services, supported employment, adult developmental training, and residential services to individuals with developmental disabilities.
