Reach Out and Read
Each year LCHC sees about 15,000 children for medical visits. One of our programs, Reach Out and Read, provides books for each child to take home as well as provides opportunities for volunteers to engage with children in the waiting room by reading to them while they are waiting to be seen by their Provider. Come read to our pediatric patients or donate Spanish and English children’s books for the program. To learn more or donate books, please email us.
Lawndale 5K Walk/Run
The Lawndale 5K Walk/Run is hosted by the Lawndale Christian Fitness Center every September. We rely on community volunteers and health center staff to coordinate the 5K. This event unites nearly 1,000 walkers, runners and youth from all over Chicago in an effort to promote healthy active lifestyles on the Westside. We would love for you to volunteer with us! There are a variety of needs before, during and after the event. To find out more, click here.
