On Saturday, June 27, a team of six from Centric Chicago participated in the 22nd annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon. More than 5,000 volunteers spent the day painting, planting, and cleaning at Chicago’s schools, parks, and other public sites.

The Centric team included Tina Bowness, Kerri Cohen, Jeff Ehman, Bridget Ehman, Ned Ryan, and Jana Sanders. They enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day while they mulched and weeded at Chicago’s Grand Crossing Park. Check out the work they did and the fun they had while volunteering in the photos below!
