back to school fundraising effort
A partnership between Evanston/Skokie School District 65, COPE (Caring Outreach by Parents in Evanston) and the District 65 PTA Council will provide school supplies for students in need.
The Evanston Community Foundation awarded a $2,500 Community Catalyst grant to support this project.
Individuals and organizations are invited to make donations to reach this year's fundraising goal of $15,000. Approximately 36 percent of the district's students qualify for free lunch. The ECF grant and other funds raised will be used to purchase bulk school supplies for at least 600 students before the start of the school year August 24.
