HBK IMPACT: West Lawn Park Clean Up
On Sunday April 3rd, HBK employees volunteered at West Lawn Little League diamonds. Volunteers racked leaves, cleaned the concession stands, and picked up any garbage in and around the fields.
West Lawn League, a nonprofit organization started in 1954 that depends on sponsorships, grants, equipment and most importantly volunteers to help keep the league going.
“West Lawn Little League runs solely on its own with no relation to any Chicago Park District. Volunteers and league staff spend over 30 hours a week training kids, cleaning the grounds, and cutting the grass. With a minimal league fee that supports equipment, uniforms, and trophies the league still turns no kid away even if they can’t pay the fee. Parents can volunteer hours to the league in return for their child to play. It’s a win win situation and helps the families out,” says Guillermo.
