2023 Positive Impact

In 2023, our D65 schools mobilized to gather leftover school supplies from classrooms and lockers that would typically go to the landfill from May 8 to June 9.

We encouraged sharing and reuse within our schools and D65 Families! Created 3 School Supply Swap Closets at Haven, Dawes & Lincolnwood.

Remaining items were donated to Art Makers Outpost, SCARCE, Books4Cause, Better World Books and Goodwill. A big thank you all who participated in our D65 End of School Classroom and Locker Clean Out. Celebrating how our individual actions add up to such positive outcomes for our community. Thanks to you as our teachers, staff, caregivers and volunteers who helped make this year's clean out a success!

2022 Positive Impact

2022, our D65 schools mobilized to gather leftover school supplies from classrooms and lockers that would typically go to the landfill from May 31 to June 10, 2022. We encouraged sharing and reuse within our schools. In 2022, we collected 305 boxes of new and gently used school supplies from 14 participating locations with 48 people helping!

Thanks to our teachers, students, staff and volunteers who helped make the donation to Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange a success!
