“Game Day,” A Unique Community Event in Englewood

Chicago, IL I Grow Chicago will host a Game Day for children, families, and residents of the Englewood Community. The nonprofit has been chosen along with 30 other organizations to be highlighted in the WBEZ/Chicago Cares Community Champions Project.  Volunteers will engage with the community in family friendly activities, including board games, face painting, and an art table at I Grow Chicago’s new Peace House at 6402 S. Honore, on Saturday, May 31, 2014 from 10am-1pm. The event will be held outdoors.

I Grow Chicago is holding this event to help bring families and neighbors together for a safe and peaceful summer. 

Although I GROW Chicago, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, is a newcomer to Englewood, the organization has impressive achievements. This year, they’ve taught ongoing yoga classes to over 250 pre-K and elementary school students, as well to as seniors and adults in Englewood. They recently hosted an “On the Table” community dinner, engaging 90 residents outdoors in an inspiring facilitated conversation about building community in Englewood. In addition to yoga, literacy, art, and urban farming programs, which provide employment opportunities and work training to Englewood residents, IGC holds book, toy, food, and coat drives and large scale community events, including a Literacy Fest this June. Their new peace house will feature intergenerational activities and classes for the neighborhood, chosen with input from the residents
