CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) --The last day of the Clinton Global Initiative University meetings in Chicago had students helping out in their host city. 

Chelsea Clinton applauded hundreds of students gathered at the X-S tennis facility in Washington Park for taking part in the university's Day of Action.

She says volunteering and community service has been an integral part of the eleven years of the university's meetings.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel encouraged the volunteers from all over the US and the world to make connections as they headed out to two CPS schools, urban gardens and the DuSable Museum.

There they painted, cleaned, organized and gardened.

Another group remained at the packaged thousands of meals to distribute to hungry people across the globe.
