ACCO School Supply Donation

On Friday August 22nd, twelve volunteers representing ACCO and two from the Kids in Need Foundation distributed 424 backpacks filled with school supplies to every child at Forrestal Elementary School. Each backpack contained new folders, a spiral notebook, pencils, erasers, scissors and more. During the time spent at Forrestal, volunteers had an opportunity to visit each of the school’s 23 classrooms, bringing countless smiles to children and teachers’ faces. The collaboration between North Chicago Community Partners (NCCP), ACCO, and Kids in Need Foundation began in the spring of 2014 when representatives expressed interest in making a large school supply donation to Forrestal Elementary School. This connection was made possible through a local community church member who had served at Forrestal in other capacities alongside NCCP.
