12,000 volunteers are needed throughout Chicago and all the suburbs. It's your typical "tag day". Volunteers are needed to work the streets, sidewalks and store fronts of Chicago and the suburbs. Volunteers simply pass out candy and informational tags in exchange for donations. Any minimum 2 hour shift would be greatly appreciated.
