Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Approximately 40 people volunteered to clean up Douglas Park in North Lawndale as a part of Sinai Health System’s 100 Steps Forward event. The event was in celebration of Sinai 100, a 100th anniversary celebration of Mount Sinai Hospital. Volunteers spent the day spreading mulch on the playlot at Douglas Park. “Sinai is a very special place, not only do caregivers serve the Lawndale community as a job, but they always make the extra effort to volunteer in the community,” said Tondalaya Shepard, volunteer coordinator at Sinai Health System. “The 100 Steps Forward event was a way to commemorate the anniversary of Mount Sinai Hospital by having caregivers do something they do normally, serve.” The park clean-up also took place at Marquette Park, across the street from Holy Cross Hospital, where volunteers collected trash and cleaned up. The event was designed to reach volunteers from across the health system. Sinai worked in conjunction with the Chicago Park District to organize the events. The 100 Steps Forward volunteering event is a part of a yearlong campaign called Sinai 100: A Century of Caring for Chicago. Mount Sinai Hospital is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019.
