Uniting America: Citizenship Workshop in Melrose Park

February 24, 2012
Militza Pagan Uniting America AmeriCorps Fellow


This past Saturday my host organization, P.A.S.O (West Suburban Action Project), hosted its first citizenship workshop of the New Year. The event was held at St. Charles Borromeo Church in Melrose Park. It was a great success. 171 community members came to apply and 95 were processed that day. We had a total of 42 volunteers and 23 of them were new Uniting America volunteers! It was amazing to see so many new volunteers take part of this important event. It truly shows the impact Uniting America is having in our communities.
