Misericordia

Laundry Helpers

Misericordia does nearly 3000 pounds of laundry a day, so needless to say your volunteer support is not only needed but would also be greatly appreciated. It is not a difficult job, but certainly one that requires ongoing help. If you are available on any Saturday or Sunday for any two or three hours or more between 8:00 am - 2:00 pm we'd love to hear from you.

Holiday Bakery

Misericordia Bakery would be happy to see volunteers. No bakery experience required. Volunteer tasks will vary between scooping, mixing, baking, packaging and displaying bakery products. Your flexibility is appreciated. Any 3 hour or more shift between 9 AM and 9 PM (on most days) is helpful. Bakery dress code: closed toed shoes, long pants, short/long sleeved shirt and a hat or hair net. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own hat or will be given one to use by Misericordia. Just about any day between mid-October and December.  Please call in advance to schedule your time.

Misericordia Jelly Belly Candy Days

12,000 volunteers are needed throughout Chicago and all the suburbs for this annual fundraiser. It's your typical "tag day". Volunteers are needed to work the streets, sidewalks and store fronts of Chicago and the suburbs. Volunteers simply pass out candy and informational tags in exchange for donations. A two-hour shift would be appreciated. Dates to be announced.
