Celebrating 50 Years of Volunteering

2019 marked HandsOn Suburban Chicago's (HOSC) fiftieth birthday!

We celebrated all year and had YOU to join in the fun. We wouldn't have had a 50th birthday if not for the work and commitment of our volunteers, partner agencies, and donors.


Each month we highlighted a particular event or story about HOSC:

January - Celebrating 50 Years of Volunteering

February - Meet two young people helping at-risk kids, A Volunteer's Story

March - Catching up with Mary Fitzgibbons

April - Meet a Lunch Buddy helping with essential skills

May - Intergenerational Pen Pals-Combine interest with a touch of the unknown, and you have the makings of a great (creative) adventure.

June - It's Our Birthday - See the faces of some of those who have helped HOSC in "connecting people with purpose." 

July - Senior Corps-RSVP members respond to the invitation to volunteer

August - AmeriCorps VISTAs - They don't know what can't be done

Sept/October - Annual Community Paint-A-Thon - Volunteers caring about their communities and neighbors

November - November is a time of giving thanks
