Chuhak & Tecson donates school supplies to low-income Chicago students

July 26, 2011

As August approaches, children across Chicago are gearing up for a new school year. And thanks to Volunteers of America of Illinois, hundreds of low-income students will be able to start the year with new school supplies.

VOA’s fifth annual Operation Backpack drive provides new backpacks and school supplies to at-risk, low-income children in Chicago. Employees at Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. donated a dozen packs filled with supplies for students in need.

“Operation Backpack provides a great service to disadvantaged children in Chicago,” said Michelle Schadler, Chief Operating Officer at Chuhak & Tecson. “I’m proud that our employees came together to donate to such a worthy cause.”

In 2010, VOA provided each of the 325 students at Morton School of Excellence with a backpack full of school supplies. Backpacks will once again be donated to students at Morton, located in West Humboldt Park.
