Much Shelist recently partnered with Playworks Illinois for our second annual firmwide volunteer day. Forty Much Shelist attorneys, staff and loved ones of all ages, gathered on Saturday, June 24 at John Barry Elementary School in Humboldt Park to transform the school’s playground area with painted spaces and games. After projects concluded, attendees enjoyed a barbecue and game of kickball with Playworks staff. See photos of the event: "Playworks 2017: John Barry Elementary."
