Who? You, Artists, Restaurants, Sat Nam Yoga Chicago, and All Your Favorite West Loop Digs!
Come together to support our neighbors under the sun, with music, food, drinks and the collective goodness of humanity.
Join us for a beautiful summer afternoon of gathering with neighbors for a cause that hits home. The event will benefit the I Grow Chicago Peace House located at 6402 Honore in West Englewood. Our mission is to provide a safe, inter-generational haven to children and at-risk community members. Through sustainable farming and educational programs in nutrition, movement, yoga and the arts, we foster creativity, wellness and empowerment for individuals in the community as a whole. Located just minutes south of the prosperous west loop it is no secret that our neighbors in West Englewood live in a place far removed, where crime and violence is all too common. Your donations will fund our 2016 Fall Programming- providing children a supervised and safe place to play outside, breakfast and lunch, yoga, and the arts. As well as day care to support working parents.
Last year, through generous donations and volunteers the I Grow Peace House was able to provide:
• Kids Summer Camp (included: yoga, mindfulness teachings, games, gardening, breakfast and lunch)
• One Summer Plus Camp for at risk youth (included: yoga, life skills lasses, urban farming)
• 2 fieldtrips took many people out of the neighborhood for a fun day at the Zoo.
• 258 kids ages 14-20 were mentored through Yoga
• Afterschool Programming and Tutoring
• 160 Thanksgiving Turkeys
• 100 Pre-cooked Meals
• 330 Children, 64 families were sponsored at the Holiday Gift Drive-empowering •parents to give gifts to their children.
• Job placement assistance- business attire, mock interviews and informational classes were provided.
• Women’s Yoga
• Laundry machine usage
• Community Dispensary
We are currently touching the lives of 300+ kids per week . We hope that you are able to take an active part in providing resources, much needed love and awareness to this cause. Join us and support the great work that is being done and help the residents of West Englewood create a sustainable community.
I Grow Chicago is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed for exclusively charitable and educational purposes.
