The Bears have launched Bears Huddle, a program that connects fans, corporate partners, Bears Premier members, Season Ticket Holders, community members and staff with volunteer opportunities throughout the Chicago area. Fans interested in receiving information about the monthly volunteer events should register at ChicagoBears.com/BearsHuddle. A list of select events is below.
"Giving back and encouraging our staff and fans to do the same is a fundamental value of the Chicago Bears Family," said Bears President & CEO Ted Phillips. "Bears Huddle provides fans with a fun way to get involved and see first-hand what we do in our local communities."
Volunteer opportunities will include events with organizations focused on education, environmental sustainability, health and wellness, military, social justice and more. Each participant will receive a Bears Huddle hat.
To elevate the club's mission of supporting our community, full-time Bears staff receive up to two days off annually to volunteer as part of Bears Huddle or through other non-profit organizations they are passionate about.
