District 54 supporting two school supply drives for students
District 54 is always looking for new school supplies for students in financial need. Currently we are supporting the Hoffman Estates Chamber of Commerce Tools for Success school supply collection, which runs through Aug. 4, and the Schaumburg Township “Fill the Bus” campaign, which will be held on August 4 and 5.
Hoffman Chamber – Tools for Success
Collection boxes labeled Tools for Success are located at numerous locations in the community, including the District 54 Administration Center (524 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg), the Schaumburg Township District Library, Hoffman Estates Village Hall, St. Alexius Medical Center, area banks and many more locations (click here for a complete list of participating locations).
Schaumburg Township – Fill the Bus
Schaumburg Township is hosting a two-day Fill the Bus school supply drive from 4 to 7 p.m. August 4 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. August 5 at the Target on Barrington and Schaumburg roads in Schaumburg. A bus has been donated by District 211 and Target has allowed the Township to use the parking lot so that people can easily make donations. For more information, check out this video created by MacArthur student Maya C. or visit the Township website.
Please note these collections are for new items only. Donated school supplies will be distributed anonymously through school personnel.
Individuals are also welcome to donate supplies directly to their neighborhood school starting August 7. Thank you in advance for your support.
