Launched by Mayor Richard M. Daley in September, 2010, One Good Deed Chicago is a City-wide campaign promoting volunteerism, community service and furthering civic engagement by citizens. The initiative will initially focus on supporting not-for-profit organizations engaged in developing out-of-school programs for young people, and helping residents most affected by the economic recession get back on track. This unique initiative is supported by a two-year "Cities of Service Leadership Grant" from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Residents without regular access to the internet can learn about volunteer opportunities by calling the City's existing 3-1-1 phone line.
