Our first backpack give away! Thurgood Marshall Middle School students were so excited and grateful to get their backpacks with supplies, fun stickers, and activity books, and we were so happy to help!
We want to send out a special thank you to Bob and Courtney Tucker for their generous donation of the backpacks! Thanks to Barbara Lumpkin and Mae Jefferson at the CPS Office of External Affairs and Partnerships for all your help coordinating the drop-off, and Mae for your help trucking the backpacks over to the school on such an unusually hot day. Last but not least, we want to thank everyone at Marshall Middle: our strong student helpers for helping us set up the backpacks and Principal Flaherty for all your help making sure these book bags got into the right hands.

“This has helped out my family so much. We really need school supplies but my mom couldn’t get me any this year. I’ve been using them a lot. I gave the coloring books to my younger brothers and they love them. I use the stickers on my bedroom door. Thank you so much. I will not forget what you have done for us.” –Anonymous
