Square Care is a project that is partnering multiple organizations and mobilizing the community to serve and care for the Lincoln Square neighborhood. For 2012, we are focusing our efforts around Winnemac Park, Chappell Elementary School and the surrounding area. For starters, on May 6 we hope to bring life to the Chappell Elementary School gardens, remove some graffiti in the park and clean up to restore the park’s overall landscape. This is a first time event, with hope that it will become an annual opportunity for partnership in Lincoln Square.
How can you get involved, you may wonder…
1) Volunteer- We ask that you please sign up. As there will be multiple projects and organizations involved, we want to make sure we have the necessary manpower and resources to complete each project to fullest potential.
2) Lead- We need leaders to step up. If this is a passion of yours, we need individuals with a passion for community restoration to provide leadership on the day of Square Care, beyond showing up to help out. You can sign up to be a project leader by emailing us and we will get you squared away.
3) Partner- We could always use additional partners. Square Care is a joint partnership between Walgreens, Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce, Community Christian Church, Winnemac Park Neighbors and Chappell Elementary School. If you are a local business owner or a part of leadership to a local organization that would like to participate, contribute or become involved in any way, we would love to hear from you and know how you plan to be involved.
Thank you so much for your interest in Square Care. We look forward to seeing you on May 6!
