Humboldt Park Gets Spring Cleaning from Exelon Volunteers

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Humboldt Park received a spring cleaning this past weekend thanks to employee volunteers from Exelon and students from Rowe-Clark Math and Science Academy. The volunteers and students spread mulch throughout the 207-acre park to promote healthy plant growth.

The event was part of the Friends of the Parks’ 25th Annual Parks and Preserves Clean-Up, with projects taking place in more than 90 parks and 30 Cook County forest preserve sites. Exelon has supported the Friends of the Parks’ volunteer program for more than 20 years, and has been its presenting Earth Day sponsor for the last four.

For the eighth consecutive year, Exelon recognized National Volunteer Week by empowering employee volunteers to design their own service projects and recruit others to participate. Exelon’s projects focus on education, environmental issues, diversity and inclusion, and community enrichment.


Students from Rowe-Clark Math & Science Academy joined employee volunteers from Exelon to help clean up Humboldt Park on Saturday, April 26. The event was part of Friends of the Parks’25th Annual Parks and Preserves Clean Up.
