Back to School Backpack Packing
August 11 at 10:00 am till 5:00 pm
Come join Who is Hussain – Chicago as we pack 1,200 backpacks to be donated to economically disadvantaged children at Chicago Public Schools!
Each year, thousands of students at Chicago Public Schools (CPS) arrive to their first day of class without the necessary supplies to properly develop their education. In response to this unfortunate issue, Who is Hussain – Chicago arranges an annual “Back to School” backpack donation. Over the past three years, we’ve been able to donate nearly 800 backpacks to CPS. However, for the current year alone, our goal is to pack and donate 1,200 backpacks to children in need.
In order to do this, we need your help! Over 60 volunteers are needed to work six mock assembly lines as we pack supplies into backpacks on August 11th. Please join us at Nicholson Technology Academy from 10am – 5pm, and remember to bring comfortable shoes! Lunch will be provided during the event.
We hope to see you there,
The Who is Hussain – Chicago Team
