Help us, Help Them!

The LGBT Chamber of Commerce of Illinois and Back 2 School Illinois are partnering together to provide Back 2 School kits to children in need by hosting a Build-A-Kit event on October 22, 2021, at the Center on Halsted.


Members of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce, along with corporate affinity groups/ERGs, are coming together on October 22, 2021, to assemble school supplies kits and write “Notes of Inspiration”.


Join us and volunteer, to provide school supplies and a chance for a better education to kids from financially struggling families. For every $19 donated, we are able to distribute one more Back 2 School kit to one more child. These are loaded with over 30 school supplies that kids need to succeed in school and beyond.
