Volunteer: Stories of Philanthrophy - Improving Neighborhoods Through Technology
On the latest episode of our feature series, Volunteer: Stories of Philanthropy, reporter Christopher Johnson meets community activist Sheenita Robinson. She’s got an idea for a mobile app she hopes will hold owners accountable for the abandoned buildings they own in her Washington Park neighborghood.
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.
