ILASLA Service Project

 Add to Calendar

Chalmers School of Excellence
2745 W. Roosevelt Road
Chicago, IL 60608

 Join us for our next service project at Chalmers School of Excellence. Members and non-members welcome. Please register ahead for additional information.  

Chalmers School of Excellence serves pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade students in the North Lawndale community. 

In the interest of making better use of space on-site, staff members have expressed interest in improving the interior courtyard to accommodate learning and mediation activities. 

During the service day, we'll prune existing and remove invasive vegetation. We may also repaint the tool shed with a mural composed of student-generated imagery.  If donations can be secured, it would be great to do some planting as well. 

Questions, or if you have materials to donate contact:  Mike Finn at <> or Susan Ragaishis at

Can you donate materials?  We need:

        • 30 bags of natural wood mulch
        • 30 Vinca minor
        • 30 Hosta (preferably 'Antioch' but other varieties, especially variegated, would be just as great)
        • Any quantity of full to part sun flowering perennials
