Chicago Canine Rescue
Jennifer Reese: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Chicago Canine Rescue is a no kill animal shelter located in the Chicago area. The Canine Rescue is known for their work in adopting animals on kill lists from around the country and finding them homes. They have currently saved more than 3,000 canine and feline lives. This site would involved a Saturday commitment from 11:00 to 4:00. Individuals would be walking and socializing dogs, as well as helping on small projects in and around the shelter when needed. Participants must be 18 years of old, have valid ID, and be willing to work and have fun. Lunch will not be provided, and instead participants will be asked to bring a bagged lunch that doesn’t require refrigeration.
Area: Evanston, Chicago, Skokie
This self-sustaining, production-level farm donates the food grown to food pantries (has even donated to Inspiration Cafe!). Volunteers would spend 2 hours a week essentially gardening vegetables/fruits for these pantries.

This is a non-profit used-bicycle collective where volunteers fix bicycles, teach bicycle maintenance to youth in the Evanston area, and take kids on bike trips, among other activities. No mechanics skills are necessary, but some training may be required.
Felines, INC. (PAWS)
PAWS is an animal adoption center in Chicago. Volunteers are trained to work with either dogs or cats. They help keep the center clean, play with and/or walk the animals, and assist potential adopters in finding the right match for them!
Volunteers work with stewards at prairie preserves in the Chicagoland area to restore land to be healthy prairie by removing invasive species and fostering native plant communities.
