Chair Free Chicago Holds Bridgeport ‘Shovel Out’
Chair Free Chicago, the upstart local organization with the goal of eliminating people using lawn chairs and other junk to “reserve” the snowbound parking spots drivers dig out, is announcing its first “Shovel Out” event in Bridgeport this afternoon from 1-3 PM.
Chair Free Chicago made headlines several months ago when the first major snowstorm of the season struck, when they announced their new organization and poster campaign.
“As part of our continuing effort to promote neighborly behavior, our founders and supporters have organized a neighborhood shoveling effort,” says press spokesperson Katrina Cabrera. “Our goal is to encourage Chicagoans to lend a hand by shoveling an extra space to help ease the frustrations of heavy snowfall, rather than adding to them by promoting contentious, unfriendly space-saving.”
According to their just issued press release the event was organized:
“To help ease the frustrations that come with a Chicago snowfall, supporters of Chair Free Chicago will be shoveling parking spots in local neighborhoods to promote and share the friendly spirit of the community movement. Chair-Free Chicago is encouraging like-minded Chicagoans to participate in the kind gesture of shoveling an extra spot or two, to build goodwill in communities instead of contributing to selfish and illegal space-saving behavior.”
