JCFS Chicago Backpack Drive — Getting Kids Ready for School

GCG volunteered with Jewish Child and Family Services (JCFS) Chicago on August 2, 2019 to stuff hundreds of brand-new backpacks with school supplies. They helped to fulfil the mission of giving children everything they need to have a successful school year. Each backpack was arranged based on the specific needs of each child. JCFS’s annual backpack drive benefits low-income and needy families in the community by collecting donations of crayons, folders, notebooks, scissors, rulers and much more to include in each backpack. GCG had so much fun and this was such a meaningful experience for us!
