Bulletproof Window Transplant in Chicago

Off The Street Club, a charitable organisation in West Garfield Park, Chicago, provides safety, education and encouragement to 3,000 children growing up in Chicago’s most violent neighborhood. This month pedestrians in downtown Chicago are being exposed to the charitable work of the organisation through a bulletproof window transplant. A bullet hole from one of the club’s bulletproof windows has been displayed alongside famous building fragments. The display encourages viewers to visit HopeIsTougher.com, where a Youtube video tells the story of Warren, a 14-year-old resident of West Garfield Park who relies on Off The Street Club.
