CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago teen is among several people telling federal lawmakers about their experiences with gun violence as they search for ways to stop it. The first to testify was a 19-year-old from Chicago's West Side.
Jeffrey Campbell, a nonprofit leader with more than 10 years’ experience, was named Executive Director of Chicago Youth Programs, a longstanding and comprehensive youth development organization headquartered in the Washington Park community, that serves 650 youth annually.
Thank you to all of our Season of Hope 2021 Sponsors. We raised over $54,000 with our Tree and Wreath Sponsorship at Prudential Plaza. Over 485 new coats and winter apparel, over 300 youth received at least 3 gifts each, and we were able to give 2 shelters at least 100 gifts for their youth.
We had the privilege of welcoming 60 new youth from 40 families into our programs, bringing us to well over 500 young people served by our efforts in 2021.
We are thrilled and excited to join in partnership with this great group of women who are putting their philanthropy to action in tangible ways.
We are so excited for this partnership and how it will amplify our ability to serve our youth and families. Watch the reveal video and celebrate with us! #UnleashPotential
