CALL Volunteer Day of Service Announced for Oct. 9 – Sign Up Now Open!

The Community Service Committee has planned a volunteer day of service for CALL members.  Join us on Saturday, October 9, from 9:00 -11:00 am, to collect trash and plastic debris from Montrose Beach. Volunteers can register using this link.

We organized this opportunity as a work group for the  Alliance for the Great Lakes, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization working across the region to protect our most precious resource: the fresh, clean, and natural waters of the Great Lakes. Plastic pollution is a growing problem in our Great Lakes, Chicago’s source of fresh drinking water. Whether you’re able to join us on Oct. 9th or not, we also encourage all CALL members to take the Plastic-Free Great Lakes Pledge and start actively changing your own daily habits to reduce plastic consumption.

We will bring garbage bags and rubber gloves, but volunteers are welcome to bring their own supplies. Be sure to dress for weather as this is a rain or shine outdoor event.  Additional family members and friends are welcome to attend. Review the current CDC Guidance on outdoor activities and take whatever measures you need to in order to feel Covid-safe together.

Please contact Mike McMillan at if you have any issues registering or any other questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
