This Week’s Volunteer Story Tackles Bedbugs
On the latest episode of our new feature series, Volunteer: Stories of Philanthropy, reporter Christopher Johnson rides along with Bronzeville exterminator Martinez Williams. Williams believes strongly that “you’ve got to give back, just really work in the community.” So he provides free services for seniors and families who can’t afford it.
We’re partnering with the Chicago Community Trust to bring you stories of people in the Chicago area who donate their skills and time to make a difference in their communities. Tune in this week (Monday at 7pm, Wednesday at 10am, and Friday at 2pm) for our broadcast, or listen on demand here.
We’d also love to hear your stories. If you have a volunteer experience you’d like to share, or if you know about an interesting volunteer effort in the region, email us and tell us about it.
