Come join the Taiwanese American Professionals in Chicago and cute middle school students from Project Vision to clean up Chinatown’s Ping Tom Park! Ping Tom Park was created in 1999 and spans 17 acres, 6 of which are developed. It has accumulated much trash over the years, so TA Professionals in Chicago, Project Vision, and CASL are teaming up to restore the park to its original state of cleanliness.
Project Vision is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide educational, professional, and interpersonal development support to the youth of Chinatown and Bridgeport. Each Chicago TAP volunteer will get to partner up with a student during the park cleanup, the goal of which is to spark interest in mentoring/tutoring for Project Vision.
This is a FREE event! Supplies and baked goods will be provided by CASL. Bubble tea provided by a Chinatown establishment – TBD.
