It's summer in Chicago, but "back to school" is closer than it seems.
All too often, kids don’t have the school supplies — pens, paper, notebooks and even tables and chairs — they need to succeed, and teachers struggle to fill the gap.
The good news: This summer, it's easier than ever to help.
How to Make a Difference in Chicago-Area Classrooms
From July 8 through July 31, join NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago’s “Supporting our Schools,” a giving campaign to help local teachers and students in need. This year, you pick the classrooms you want to directly impact across the city and suburbs.
Through the NBC 5-Telemundo Chicago DonorsChoose.org section, you will see various requests from teachers across the Chicago area.
From technology to books to furniture, these projects help enrich the learning opportunities in thousands of classrooms. Find a project that inspires you or impacts a school in your neighborhood.
To get started you can head directly to donate at donorschoose.org/nbc5.
Making a Difference is as easy as A-B-C!
