On June 21, at our Chicago office, a number of Fitch Even attorneys and staff along with their children took part in the Back 2 School Illinois "Build-a-Kit" initiative for the third consecutive year, assembling 100 kits containing school supplies to be distributed to grade-school students currently living in foster homes overseen by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
Back 2 School Illinois is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to create and support educational opportunities that enrich the lives of Illinois children. They partner with 17 community organizations and governmental agencies to ensure school supplies are effectively distributed to children in need. In addition to its Back 2 School program, the organization offers other programs to fulfill their mission, including a college scholarship program.
Fitch Even is proud to support Back 2 School Illinois in their efforts. Please visit our Facebook page to view photos from the event.
