A Huge Thank You!
The drive is now closed! Thanks to your overwhelming support, we have collected enough school supplies for 252 kids for the 2022-2023 School Year!!
(Special thanks to Ketsa R. and Kamesh K. for spreading the word and reaching out to donors!)
School supplies play a critical role in child development and learning, yet the responsibility to get these supplies lies heavily on teachers, ” In a survey by Scholastic, an educational publishing and media company, principals were found to have spent an average of $683 of their own money, while teachers spent $530 on average (on school supplies) – and teachers in high-poverty neighborhood schools spent nearly 40 percent more than that”(npr.org). Join us in our mission to provide 1000 school supply kits for Chicagoland schools this summer!
(This drive will run through August 15, 2022. All supplies collected will be donated to Multiple Chicagoland schools between August 16 – August 31, 2022)
