Help Clean Up Chicago’s Parks This Summer

We have seen many Chicagoans helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic, now’s your chance for your family to help the Chicago Park District. 

The Chicago Parks Foundation has created a new volunteer program called Pitch In for the Parks. Due to fewer seasonal employees, this citywide initiative encourages anyone to help clean up Chicago parks. You can participate by organizing a volunteer group, attending one of the pre-scheduled park clean-up events or picking up trash on your own. 

LOOK FOR THE HELPERS: Do you know a local that’s giving back during the COVID-19 crisis? Email us at editor@chicagoparent.com.

The following parks have scheduled clean-up events that you must register for in advance:

Cleaning supplies will be provided to volunteers at events. As always, make sure you’re wearing a face covering and practice social distancing when there.
