SFS at SerbFest in Chicago


Friday-Sunday August 5-7, 2106 – Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Church, Chicago, IL

For the weekend August 5th through the 7th, Serbs for Serbs in Chicago attended the 25th Annual Serb Fest Festival at the Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Church in Chicago for the 1st time in our 6 year history. It was a great opportunity for Serbs For Serbs to introduce ourselves to some new people, so we set up a tent to provide information about our charity organization and introduce the visitors to our activities and organization.

 

Along with accepting many donations, we received a lot of positive feedback along with many new volunteers that want to join and help Serbs For Serbs.

We made a positive impression on new people and ran into many who already support our work. It was nice to get a chance to personally thank and speak with donors and get their feedback.

In all, we were able to raise $1,735 in donations! We are very thankfull to all who stopped by our tent and made donations.

We are looking forward to returning to Serb Fest again next year!
