Be Head of the Class: Participate in the Annual Back-to-School Supply Drive

Our 3rd Annual Back-to-School Supply Drive is here and our friends at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago have teamed up with SOS Illinois as this year’s Premier Sponsor!


The 3rd Annual Back-to-School Drive carries on a successful tradition that was born from the desire to support our young students and Foster Parents. For the last two years, the Back-to-School Drive has been such an important way to do just that. Through the support of individual donations, collections from office supply drives, and generous contributions from our corporate partners, we have been able to fill our young students’ backpacks with plenty of supplies to ease the pressure on our Foster Parents in readying the children for another school year.

About Our Premier Sponsor: Fashion Outlets of Chicago

This year, we are delighted to partner with Fashion Outlets of Chicago as our Premier Sponsor. As part of their annual Back-to-School Celebration, Fashion Outlets of Chicago is inviting guests to stop by Concierge Services to receive exclusive offers and incentives, as well as to participate in their school supply drive. By donating a school supply item of a $5 value or more, guests will receive a free general admission ticket to the Brookfield Zoo (valued at $19.85). This promotion begins on August 12, 2017, and runs through August 27, 2017. At the end of the promotion, all supplies collected will be donated to SOS Illinois! Additionally, guests are invited to sign up for Shopper Rewards between August 12 – 27 and will receive $20 in Shopper Rewards Cash redeemable between August 28 and September 10!

Start Your Own Supply Drive

Last year the support many of you showed through office supply collections was truly amazing. See some of the contributions made possible through gathering collections at the office.

We encourage you to gather your colleagues together again this year. We are excited to see what you will help us accomplish for our 3rd Annual Back-to-School Supply Drive. Share your progress and activity on social media and stay in touch with any questions along the way. Together, by providing essentials like pens and pencils, our Foster Parents and children will be free to focus on all the exciting goals they have made for a successful academic year.
