Media Alert

LUC Exemplifies the Midwest’s Commitment to Volunteering
School’s Annual Service Day Reflects Chicago’s #32 Ranking in Recent Study

What:

Loyola University Chicago faculty, staff, and retirees will support the local community on July 25 by volunteering their time to St. Gregory the Great High School, located in Edgewater. An annual project, this will be Loyola’s most ambitious Service Day to date. Volunteers will paint more than 8,000 square feet in the school, giving St. Gregory a fresh look for the fall.

Project Details:

St. Gregory will become the third school in the community that Loyola volunteers have painted. Other schools include Swift Elementary in 2005 and the Chicago Mathematics & Science Academy in 2006.

 

When:
Wednesday, July 25, 2007
12:00 – 5:15 p.m.

Where:
St. Gregory the Great High School
1677 W. Bryn Mawr
Chicago, IL 60660

Why:
Loyola University Chicago’s mission focuses specifically on service for others. Its commitment to Service Day is not only reflective of its mission, but also of a recent study released by the U.S. government, which pinpointed the Midwest as the number one region in the country for volunteerism, and reported that approximately 27 percent of Chicago adults volunteer their services. The University’s annual Service Day project encourages faculty and staff to take a day away from the office and lend a hand to the community with fellow co-workers.
