What is School's Out Green Out?
CCRx invites Chicagoland students, teachers and schools to gather their leftover supplies at the end of the school year and share your surplus!
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!
Start within your school first, then bring what's left to CCRx. We'll redistribute the good stuff to Chicago teachers at our next back-to-school Swap Circle for Teachers.
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!
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.
