CCRx's Fall 2018 Swap Circle for Teachers was a great success!
Over 500 Chicago teachers received more than 10 tons of supplies, materials and equipment donated by 140 Chicago businesses and individuals, valued at $150,000. The Swap was held at Rockwell on the River, a beautiful event space donated to CCRx for the 2 weeks it took to build, host and dismantle this pop-up event.
80+ volunteers were needed to make it happen, and they pitched in on everything from designing signs to directing traffic, weighing donations, greeting teachers and sweeping up. They were (are) amazing!!!
