Donate for Giving Tuesday 2021
They are students who are grieving over the loss of family members who died of COVID and/or still suffering from Covid-19 complications.
They are parents concerned about the violence in the community especially when their children are going to and from school.
2021 has proven to be a very challenging year for our country, especially in Chicago, where Covid-19 and neighborhood violence have severely impacted our most vulnerable communities with additional trauma.
The Chicago Teachers Union Foundation supports educators and their students throughout the year with targeted programming to help mitigate the trauma they endured through no fault of their own.
Our work with schools reeling from student death provides counseling through the CTUF Quest Center for educators and their students. Our restorative justice team has personally grieved with educators and students at afflicted schools.
Our work with Covid-19 prevention by providing vaccinations has enabled those without access to receive vaccinations at one of our many events at the CTU Center and CPS schools. On Friday, November 12, 2021, CPS Vaccination Awareness day, the CTUF administered over 256 vaccinations to children and adults!
As we plan our annual Giving Campaign 2021 during this season of giving, we are coming to you for ways to support. We are coming to you to support our goal in targeting families that are in dire need due to hardship and sickness who may be in need of holiday meals, toys, and coats during this holiday season.
