What is a Green Out?
Green Out! Donations Drives are a great way for businesses, block clubs, scout troops and other groups to gather their surplus and share with Chicago teachers, their students and other nonprofits.
School's Out Green Out! If you're a Chicagoland student, teacher, or school, gather your leftover supplies at the end of the school year -- backpacks, binders, desks, and dioramas -- if it's in good shape and you don't need it, SOGO lets you share with those who do!
To participate, all we need is one point-person (teacher, parent, homeroom, class, or club) who can rally the school. It can be as simple as putting boxes in the hallways during locker clean-out, or more involved with awareness campaigns (posters, announcements, etc.), weighing and tracking, etc.
With 80% of CPS students living below the poverty line and teachers reaching into their pockets for basic supplies, you know there'll be folks who can use what your school doesn't need any longer!
