Citizen Katie: Volunteer at Misericordia

Join Katies in Chicago for a morning of community service!

Date/Time: Saturday, September 30, 8-11 a.m.

Location: Misericordia, 6300 N. Ridge Ave., (at the corner of Devon & Ridge), in Chicago.

About Misericordia: Misericordia offers a community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged. By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.

What we'll do: We will be laundry helpers from 8-11 a.m. Misericordia does nearly 3,500 pounds of laundry a day, so volunteer support is needed and greatly appreciated. It is not a difficult job, but certainly one that requires ongoing help.

Dress: Personal attire must be clean, pressed and in good taste. Jeans, sweatshirts and t-shirts are all acceptable as long as they are not ripped or torn and have no questionable sayings on them. Women’s Capri pants must be mid-calf length or longer. Shirts must have some type of sleeve and be long enough to cover the top of your pants, even when you bend and stretch. Shorts, tank tops, sleeveless shirts, bare midriff tops, low cut necklines and mini skirts are not allowed. Volunteers must also wear closed toed shoes. Gym shoes are great. No flip flops or opened toed sandals. Extremes in dress, hairstyles, and make-up should be avoided. Exposed body piercing should be limited to the ears.

Sign up: Six volunteers are needed to fill the morning laundry shift. Please email chicagochapter@stkate.edu if you will be participating.

Their stories are served up in this great tour.
