The Chicago Chapter of the Haas Alumni Network invites you to join your fellow Haas alums and help a great cause by providing packing and other support at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Volunteer activities include repacking bulk products to individual/family sizes, assembling boxes with assorted food, checking expiration dates, labeling products, etc. Friends and family are welcome (must be 14 or older). Be sure to wear long pants closed toe shoes (as if this weather would allow for anything else!). Space is limited.

The site is somewhat difficult to reach via public transit, so when you register for the event if you are planning to drive there, please let Geoff know if you would be able to drive other volunteers as well.

For more info, go to the Greater Chicago Food Depository website: chicagosfoodbank.org

We are limited to 10 volunteers, so if you register and cannot attend, please notify us, so we can contact people on the Wait List.

In honor of Beyond Yourself Month at the Haas School of Business, join other alums as we clean and re-paint the cafeteria of a local K-8 school.  While near the heart of Silicon Valley, the Ravenswood City School District serves students from East Palo Alto and eastern Menlo Park — 90% come from low-income households and two-thirds are English learners.  Live up to Haas' defining principle and help us bridge the gap between what state and local funding can support and what the school needs.
