School Supply Drive

March 27 - May 19

Chicago Commons is once again hosting a school supply drive to benefit children from our early childhood education program going to kindergarten in the fall. We will collect backpacks filled with supplies to distribute to the children leaving our program the first week in June and entering kindergarten in the fall.

The school supply drive will operate similarly to the “Angel Tree.” Commons will provide photos and bios of each child, and volunteers can opt to sponsor as many children with backpacks and supplies. The deadline to submit materials is Friday, May 19, 2017.

To participate, contact Sarah Fricks: 773-826-3607 or fricks@chicagocommons.org

Suggested Materials:

  • Backpacks
  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Elmer’s school glue/glue stick
  • Scissors (ones that are safe/comfortable for a child)
  • Crayons (Crayola preferred)
  • Folders
  • Markers
  • Notebooks
