Community Service

The Princeton Club of Chicago engages in a variety of Community Service projects each year. This year, as last year, we will be helping with the Chicago Audubon Society in their stewardship and clean up of the Montrose Beach Conservation Area in early June, the Angelic Organics Eat to Live garden in Englewood mid-summer, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository in the fall!

The Montrose Beach Conservation Area is an important stop in the migration of many birds because of the unique location and geography of Montrose Beach. Volunteers are needed to help with weeding, mulching, planting native shrubs and trees. We are also establishing a prairie!

Volunteering at Eat to Live is in conjunction with Harvard and Yale alumni, and we are tasked with weeding, watering, and harvesting. Eat to Live is a garden which is the first phase of a larger urban farm business incubator and serves as a teaching garden for the community, as well as a source of fresh produce!

The Chicago Food Depository work day involves preparing, sorting, and serving food to those in the community.

Alumni, families, and friends are welcome for all events! Additional information and links to RSVP are available on the Events tab of the PCC website. For more information, please contact: Lauren Sykora at lsykora@alumni.princeton.edu or (847) 212-7041.
