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.

We are looking for 60 volunteers to join us on Saturday, September 13 for a bike build event which will take place from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. at the north end of Parking Lot A at U.S. Cellular Field.

Because of the physical nature of the service we will be completing, we do not suggest bringing children under the age of 12, and all volunteers under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All volunteers will be asked to fill out a waiver at registration before serving; those under the 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign for them. Upon check-in, you will be assigned to a small group. Each group will be provided with small tools and bike parts to build the bike. Please come dressed in comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. Please wear closed-toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather - this event will take place rain or shine. Snacks and water will be provided.

To register for the bike build, please send your full name, phone number and email address to volunteercorps@whitesox.mlb.com. Please write "Bike Build" in the subject line.
