About The Honeycomb Project:

  • Chicago-based nonprofit The Honeycomb Project is known for their hands-on family volunteer projects around the city.
  • Honeycomb helps kids and their families strengthen Chicago’s communities through public service, while learning firsthand about important social issues like hunger & poverty, environmental conservation, homelessness, health & wellness, racial justice, etc.
  • Now they’re responding to the unprecedented challenges facing our city, hosting both virtual and in-person (socially distanced) volunteer projects for kids of all ages and their parents.
  • Honeycomb families have been stepping up like never before: delivering groceries to homebound seniors, providing PPE to nonprofit partners, preparing home-cooked meals for teens experiencing homelessness, spreading cheer to frontline workers, and so much more!
  • Since Honeycomb’s start in 2011, more than 1.5 million Chicagoans have been positively impacted by Honeycomb projects.
  • More than 25,000 Chicagoans have participated in Honeycomb events and 93% of Chicago’s zip codes are represented by volunteers.
  • Children who volunteer with their parents are three times as likely to volunteer and be charitable as adults.
