Never Forget Chicago presents Terrence’s Day of Service Pt. 2, the event is a day of service and remembrance for victims of Chicago violence and their families.  The event will take place on Sunday, July 28th from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM at 556 W Culleton St.

Families participating will take part in a community day that is aimed at undoing dilapidated conditions that foster violence in Chicago neighborhoods. Through taking direct action, Terrence’s Day of Service is a therapeutic experience for families and an opportunity for them to participate directly in productive, solution-based actions to reduce violent crime trends in Chicago.

For our part 2 series of Terrence’s Day of Service there will be two community projects available for participants. They include an art project, where participants paint signage to spread positive messages in the neighborhood; and a garden project, where participants plant seeds of hope and disseminate raised plant beds throughout the neighborhoods as part of a beautification effort.

Terrence’s Day of Service Pt.2 is open to participants of all ages. If interested in participating, please RSVP by Thursday, July 25th, 2019.

Terrence, an anti-violence mascot, represents the innocence lost each day by violence in Chicago, and he is a public figure symbolic of peace, love and hope in remembrance of the victims of violence and their families, and a hope to someday live in a violence-free society. Join us and participate on Sunday, July 28th.
