Local Volunteer Opportunities

Hi neighbors,

I need a new local volunteering gig, bigly. I had previously volunteered with Tree House Humane Society for over ten years, but after their Bucktown branch closed this year, I've been adrift (new location is too far away, boohoo).

Any ideas on progressive organizations in the neighborhood that need a helping hand (one-off or ongoing)? I'm at Division and Leavitt and would prefer something within walking distance or via a bus. My interests are pretty varied -- social justice, animals, children, the elderly, etc.

I've checked out Volunteer Match and One Brick but both were kind of slim pickings for near-by volunteering.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

  • Great job, CPD! Now, will the judge utter the famous words that release violent offenders immediately back onto the street:

    NO PROBABLE CAUSE

    Any judge that lets violent and armed criminals back onto the street needs to be voted out of office, and/or run out of town tarred and feathered.

    If these offenders were sentenced and jailed, we would have a safer city.

Red light violation: Division/Damen

Neighbors, has anyone else received a red light violation from turning south and Damen from heading east on Division? I stopped at the light, had my blinker on, then turned. A few weeks later I got a red light violation. There is no "no turn on red" sign so I am stumped.

I tried to fight it with the city with the pictures of the intersection and they declined my contest without any explanation. This seems like a total scam.

Any tips or advice for fighting this?

Hello neighbors: Something to look out for in near Damen / Thomas / Hoyne /Haddon areas of 60622: This evening while I was walking my dog, a man in a white Volkswagen sedan moved his car up to block the crosswalk I was trying to cross. He was looking straight at me and jerking off. Appalled, I turned and walked the other way. Then I get to my house not even a block away and another different man in a white Nissan sedan is doing the same thing in his car in front of my house not even 5 minutes later. Two different dudes, two different white cars within less than a block away from each other. I did not have my phone on my so I did not call the police to report either incident and I was too grossed out to go back out the car parked in front of my house to get the plate number.

    Mute, according to Illinois Statutes and City Ordinance no matter what size of taser it is considered possession of a weapon. But a small pocket size taser or mace would be a misdemeanor. But I don't know any Police Officer that would charge you if you were being attacked and you used it. Mace is sold practically everywhere. You want to get the stream and not the spray. The stream does exactly that. The spray goes all over and could spray an innocent. The stream is like a water hose and goes directly at your target. There is a saying that says it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. The mace sells for about $10 to $15. I don't think you are the kind of person that would be walking down the street and be subject to stop and frisk. It is better to be safe than sorry. If you were my sister I wouldn't hesitate to get her both to protect herself. Stay safe Mute
