ICNA Relief Chicago intends to distribute 2,000 backpacks and supplies, a $50,000 value, over the summer. They will also provide free medical checkups through their brand new Mobile Medical Clinic, free haircuts, food, and fun activities at a mega distribution event on July 27, 2018, from 11 am to 1 pm at North Side Tabernacle of Praise Church in Chicago. This drive is in collaboration with various local faith groups, non-profits, Chicago Police, Chicago Public Schools, libraries, village halls, Target, Starbucks, Walgreens, and 15 more businesses. The list grows daily.
The community-at-large is invited to support the effort. Supplies can be shipped, and/or checks mailed to ICNA Relief Chicago, 1793 Bloomingdale Rd, Suite 4, Glendale Heights, IL 60139. Deadline for in-kind or online donations at icnarelief.org/back2school: July 17. To volunteer, be a sponsor, or to partner, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also support ICNA Relief through Amazon Smile.
“20 percent of American kids live in poverty. We know that our back to school efforts represent much more than just backpacks and supplies for these underprivileged kids,” said Dr. Saima Azfar, Director, ICNA Relief Chicago, “it shows them that we care about their education and value them as the future leaders of our great nation.”
In 2018 alone, ICNA Relief USA distributed 43,000 backpacks with supplies, in over one hundred locations in 35 states. Since 2009, ICNA Relief has distributed nearly a quarter million backpacks filled with supplies, nationwide to needy children. Its services, provided through 56 chapters, include 17 transitional shelters for women and children, car donations, refugee assimilation programs, professional counseling and food pantries.
