CCRx teamed up with the Chicago Teachers Union Foundation this past month to get needed supplies to Chicago teachers who are teaching from home. Almost 500 teachers responded to a survey asking what they needed most. The responses -- Whiteboards! Paper! Markers! Pencils!
CTUF was able to purchase some of these most wanted items, so a giveaway was held at the CTU Center on May 25-26 for whiteboards, easels, and several types of new supplies. CCRx will hold a followup event in another week to distribute the remaining items requested from our inventory of gently used surplus.
Stay tuned and keep up the good work. Teachers are essential workers too!
