Join Gov. Pritzker, Cradles to Crayons and Discover for “Ready For Learning” Backpacking Event
July 28 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
On Wednesday, July 28, Governor J.B. Pritzker will join Cradles to Crayons’ (C2C) “Ready for Learning” initiative presented by Discover – the largest school supply distribution in the region.
Throughout July, Cradles to Crayons and more than 500 Discover employees and other volunteers will gather to pack and distribute 60,000 backpacks full of school supplies for Chicagoland kids.
C2C and Discover are still seeking community volunteers to assist at the event and sign-up information can be found here: https://www.cradlestocrayons.org/chicago/the-latest/events/ready-for-learning
In a time of increased need, this initiative will serve 20 percent more kids than the previous year. Cradles to Crayons’ “Ready for Learning” initiative will ease the financial burden on families and remove barriers to a quality education for children living in low-income or homeless situations.
