On behalf of our organization, we are thrilled to announce that we will be changing our name to The Remember Project (formerly Save Chicago).
The Remember Project (established Aug. 24, 2013) is a non-profit organization that provides unique opportunities for college students to volunteer in the inner city communities of Chicago during breaks from school.
In less than a year, we were able to host a large day of service in which we managed to bring 150 NIU students to volunteer all over Chicago. On that day, students were able to prepare meals for the homeless, execute landscaping projects and impact the lives of more than 300 youth.
This rebrand strongly reflects our drive to assure that, on the road to obtaining a higher education, college students remember to give back to the communities they are from.
This rebrand also includes the launching of our new website: THEREMEMBERPROJECT.org.
“The name may change,” said Randiss Hopkins, founder of The Remember Project, “but, most importantly, the cause is still the same.”
To our valued NIU students that have dedicated their time and service to this effort: You will have to create a LEADER profile on our site which will allow you to sign up for future service projects and manage your service hours. Though at the time we are only accepting NIU students, by the fall of 2015, we hope to open The Remember Project to college students all over the state. Ultimately, we would like to expand it nationally.
On Wednesday, Aug. 27, we will have an information table for students looking to get involved with The Remember Project at the HUSKIES BBQ hosted by the Student Association and the Campus Activities Board. The first 75 students to create LEADER profiles on our site will receive free Remember Project T-shirts.
