Participate in Events
Reach your target audience while demonstrating your company’s dedication to the children of Chicago.

It takes only a small amount of time to make a difference in a child’s life, and the volunteers at Lurie Children's do just that. While sometimes limited due to the sensitive nature of our hospital environment, we do provide specialized group volunteer opportunities for our corporate partners and their employees.
There are also individual volunteer opportunities for interested parties available through the Lurie Children’s Volunteer Services Department.
