Donate

Through support from our generous donors, we are able to facilitate supply collections and create kits for distribution. Your donations are imperative to changing the disparities within Chicago and the educational field. Any and all donations can greatly impact the life of a child who does not readily have access to school, art, and craft supplies from the comfort of their home or at school. Thank you for your help!
