Event description

Description

Join TAP-Chicago and KACC as we volunteer at Korean Senior's Day. We will serve over 600 participants in 2 shifts Saturday morning and afternoon. Volunteer duties include greeting, guiding seniors, packing and passing out lunch boxes, handling raffle prizes, and more. Free delicious Korean lunch & t-shirts will be provided!

Why volunteer? Korean American senior citizens face linguistic, cultural and economic barriers and often suffer from social isolation and depression in everyday life away from their home country. Each year, the festival hosts Korean American seniors and their families for a day of recognition and celebration. The highlight of the event is performances of local, international, and senior artists in the Cultural Art Program. The event is primarily sponsored by donations from local business owners.
