CHICAGO BULLS’ SIDNEY GREEN VISITS DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED


Chicago, Ill. – Chicago Bulls’ Sidney Green recently visited developmentally disabled children and young adults in Chicago’s Rogers Park community. Green passed out t-shirts and autographed photos to several fans at Alden Village North Health Facility for children and young adults. A power forward, Green played on the Bulls from 1983-1986.

“We have a group of seven guys who watch every Bulls game together and get so excited when cheering on their favorite players. They talk about the good and bad plays for days after,” says Mary Ellen Schweitzer, community liaison.

“When Sidney came in, I knew who he was right away. I told the guys, we should have known the staff was planning something special for us because they kept asking us about the Bulls and our favorite players,” says Lorne Mackey, 31, resident.

“The Bulls are my favorite team, and it was great to have Sidney come and visit on my birthday. It was a great day,” says Sam Galloway, 35, resident.

Recently, Alden Village North underwent a total top-to-bottom renovation. The updated facility provides nearly 100 special needs children and adults with larger bedrooms, increased bathing rooms as well as classroom and programming spaces.


“We try and do lots of outings and trips with our residents; they go to Cubs games, the movies, the Shedd Aquarium and museums, shopping, out to eat, and even the beach. But most of all, our residents love watching Chicago sports. They know the teams, stats and when all the games are on. Basketball playoffs are one of the best times of year here because they get really into the games,” says Janine Ciemny, Administrator, Alden Village North.

Alden Village North offers specialized programs to address the needs of developmentally disabled children and young adults and is located at 7464 N. Sheridan Rd. in Chicago. For more information, call 773.338.0200 or visit http://www.aldenvillagenorth.com/ .
