Together We Cope is honored to once again be selected as one of the five charities to benefit from the International Home and Housewares Show at McCormick Place in Chicago. We are looking for 100 volunteers to assist in the collection and packaging of the hundreds of donations exhibitors give us on the last day of the show, Tuesday, March 5.
TWC provides round-trip transportation by bus from our office at 17010 S. Oak Park Ave to McCormick Place. The “Packing-up” event is from noon to about 8 p.m., however volunteers can work part or all of the day. Transportation will be provided only for those working the full day.
The show features over 2,200 exhibitors from around the world. Items given to Together We Cope will be distributed to families in need as well as sold in Nu2u (TWC Resale Shop) to help generate revenue for our services.
Together We Cope assists neighbors in need in four townships bounded by 87th street on the north to 183rd Street on the South, and between Will-Cook Road (County Line Road) on the west and Western Avenue on the east. Residents of this area (excluding the Mt. Greenwood neighborhood) are eligible for assistance from Together We Cope.
