On Saturday August 29th join us as we set out to feed our city's homeless. For this month's event we will be focusing on the city's youth. The largest and most important safety net for homeless children & youth is the public school system, which provides both basic services as well as the education that is necessary to avoid poverty as adults.
Hashtaglunchbag Chicago wants to help those children in need by giving them school supplies to support their efforts. We hope to collect enough school supplies to last the entire school year. All supplies are accepted including (but not limited to) notebooks, pencils, pens, book bags, glue, crayons, highlighters, folders, index cards, rulers, sharpeners, and binders.
We will be collecting and distributing the supplies to several shelters at our next #Hashtaglunchbag
event, next Saturday at The Promontory (5311 S Lake Park Ave) on August 29th. The event starts at 9am. If you are willing to collect items are your business or office, please let us know. #BeABlessing #LivingThroughGiving #HashtaglunchbagChicago #HomelessNotHopeless #Chicago #RAKE #feedthehomeless #Hashtaglunchbag
