In 2019, D65 had 14 schools participate and collected over 100 boxes of new and gently used school supplies that were shared amongst district employees or donated. We're excited about doing it again this year!
D65 schools are mobilizing to gather leftover school supplies from classrooms and lockers that would typically go to the landfill. This includes anything from paper and markers to calculators and science equipment. Used condition is fine, as long as everything is clean, safe, and working. Re-use and sharing are encouraged within each school. The remaining items will be donated to Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange.
Look for collection boxes in schools from May 31-June 10.
