Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle

Congratulations Team CCO! We are grateful to all our wonderful team members who participated in the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle! Together the 11 members that ran the Shuffle raised over $3,500 to help alleviate homelessness in Chicago!

Nearly half of the team are adolescents who volunteer at CCO wrapping and delivering birthday gifts and treats to children living in the shelter. We are proud of their example to others and compassionate dedication to homeless children!

It’s not too late to join Team CCO. Learn more here.
