Your organization can support the many volunteers that generously give their time to help put on the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade – through donating an item to either our volunteer gift bag or our volunteer raffle.

And we’re going to help promote your company to one of the best volunteer programs in the city!

Now, our volunteers really are the backbone of this parade – it simply wouldn’t go ahead without them. With that said, we’d like to include your organization in our Gift Bag and Raffle when you donate to our Volunteer Program!

So how does it work?

Your “Gift Bag” donations will be given out to our amazing volunteers and VIPs at the 2019 Chicago Thanksgiving Parade. 

Plus, each volunteer will be entered into our “Parade Thank You Raffle” – held during our Thank You Party in January of 2020. We all owe so much to them, and you can be an extension of our city’s gratitude!

To recap, it not only shows your support for the parade and Chicago community but will help promote your company to one of the best volunteer programs in the city!
