1/10 Cubs caravan kicks off next week

The Cubs will serve lunch to 250 military service personnel and veterans next Thursday as part of the team’s “100 Gifts of Service 2014 Caravan Tour.” The caravan kicks off a year-long program featuring Cubs players, coaches and front office associates engaging in community service projects to celebrate Wrigley Field’s 100th birthday. Throughout 2014, Cubs associates and players will visit hospitals and schools, serve meals to children and families in need, and renovate playgrounds as part of the ballpark’s centennial celebration.

Next week’s Cubs caravan will visit three schools, three hospitals, and the 2nd Battalion, 24th Marine base where players, coaches and front office associates will serve lunch to military service personnel and veterans in partnership with the USO of Illinois.

During a caravan stop at Casals School of Excellence in Humboldt Park, the players and staff will paint murals, build benches and cabinets for reading spaces, and redesign a room for academic tutoring.

I miss the days when the Cub’s Caravan traveled to South Bend and/or Merrillville and we could drive down from Michigan and meet the team. Grand Rapids, MI used to be a stop on the winter caravan until the Detroit Tigers complained. Those stops were always packed with fans and raised money for local charities.
