To help celebrate Halloween, Slivkans volunteered with Project Pumpkin, a Northwestern event for local children to trick or treat, play Halloween games, and have fun in a safe environment. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Slivkans helping others
Each year, Slivka gets a table at Project Pumpkin, which is an activity put on by Northwestern to allow the children of Evanston to trick-or-treat in a safe environment. This year, we made jack-o-lantern masks!
Slivka’s philanthropy events are often in Evanston, to help make the community we live in better! Here, we cleaned up leaves and woodchips.
On the morning of April 27th, Slivkans enjoyed brunch while watching Sunday morning cartoons in the rec lounge. This was to raise money for Relay for Life.
On April 30th, a group of Slivkans banded together in the rec lounge for a Philanthropy Event. The group made fifty bagged lunches – containing sandwiches and other snacks – for Connections for the Homeless in Evanston.
Northwestern’s Dance Marathon 2013 raised over $1.2 million for the Danny Did foundation.
Slivkans helped landscape areas around the Shedd Aquarium.
We headed over to the Talking Farm on Howard in Skokie to volunteer at their Fall Hullabaloo festival. We enjoyed seeing the farm, making hot cider, and sitting by the bonfire playing with kids.
