Back to School Supply Drive 2021
2021 BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Back to School is an exciting time of year, except for students whose families can’t afford to buy all the items on lengthy school supply lists — often amounting to more than $500 per child. When teachers quietly provide these supplies on their own, they spend an average of $745 per year out of their own pocket.
As students return to classrooms this Fall, you can help teachers put essential school supplies directly in the hands of students most in need by donating your surplus supplies to the Back to School Supply Drive.
Since 2018, the Chicago Teacher Union Foundation and Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) have collaborated to meet the needs of Chicagoland teachers by soliciting and gathering supplies for teachers to support their students.
This year’s most needed items include Pens, Pencils, Backpacks, Loose Leaf Paper, Copy Paper, Rulers, Markers, Crayons, Folders, Glue Sticks, and Colored Pencils.
Drop off new and gently used supplies at participating United Credit Union Locations, CCRx Warehouse, or the Chicago Teacher Union Foundation. Please sort, bundle and box them first!
