Join Team Sleet with the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon

From one of our local residents, Brian Sleet

The Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon is both the largest day of community service in Chicago and the largest fundraiser for Chicago Cares. Join thousands of volunteers from companies, churches, alumni groups, fraternities, block clubs, neighborhoods and families to paint a brighter future for Chicago children. It is now in its 17th year.

We'll help students succeed as we beautify Chicago school classrooms, libraries and playgrounds! In just one day, Serve-a-thon volunteers transform schools into wonderful, vibrant places to learn and grow. The Serve-a-thon is also the largest fundraiser for Chicago Cares, and money raised through this event makes it possible for us to create, manage and lead 215 volunteer projects every month.

Sixth Ward and Chatham resident Brian Sleet has started his team, "Team Sleet" to help out. You can join or donate to Team Sleet or any Chicago Cares Team at http://chicagocares.kintera.org/serve-a-thon2010/teamsleet

Bets wishes for Team Sleet!
