CGI U 2018 Day of Action

October 21, 2018, Chicago, Illinois

Chelsea Clinton and Mayor Rahm Emanuel led students in a Day of Action to give back to the Chicago community. First, students gathered to hear remarks from Chelsea Clinton and Mayor Emanuel on the importance of community service. They then dispersed to nine different service sites to complete projects across several community organizations in the South Side, Chicago area. Founded and led by Chelsea Clinton in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the Clinton Foundation Day of Action program seeks to create service opportunities and mobilize thousands of volunteers to give back to their communities. To date, the Clinton Foundation has hosted 32 Days of Action in the United States and abroad, which have mobilized more than 7,200 volunteers and donated more than 29,000 volunteer hours.
