White Sox Volunteer Corps

2014 VOLUNTEER CORPS






We are excited to embark on our sixth year of service and volunteerism. More than 6,200 fans have answered the call to service, and we appreciate your commitment to bettering the community. We look forward to an exciting season of service!


Our Mission
The White Sox Volunteer Corps was created to encourage fans and community-minded Chicagoans to join together and better their communities through service. The team organizes events that incorporate support from players, staff and members of the volunteer group to serve shoulder-to-shoulder to make a positive and lasting impact in our community.


Volunteer Opportunities
The Chicago White Sox recognizes opportunities including mass mobilized service days, food repacks and mobile pantries, book sorting sessions, park clean-ups and more. Our calendar of events is listed below, with more details for each to be sent via email. If you have any questions, ideas or comments, please feel free to email us at volunteercorps@whitesox.mlb.com. We'd love to hear from you.
