CHICAGO (April 15, 2023) –– Back 2 School America, the Chicago-based non-profit renowned for its Build-A-Kit program that provides vital school supplies for students in need, announces the date for the much-anticipated special champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception honoring the twenty-five (25) winning Illinois teachers selected for this year’s first “We Appreciate Teachers” contest.
Each winning teacher from the statewide contest (January 10 – April 01, 2023) shall receive a personal gift basket for their enjoyment and Back 2 School Kits, which are packed with vital school supplies for their respective classrooms.
"We Appreciate Teachers" is an initiative designed to celebrate and support teachers statewide with the hopes of also slowing down their loss in the state. This contest truly supports the students and teachers as it provides much-needed school supplies for students who are unable to afford them while also working to eliminate the need for teachers to pay for supplies out of their own pocket. Most importantly, it provides the students with the tools, confidence, and excitement they all deserve.
