Volunteer with CCRx's Swap Circle for Teachers

The Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange seeks Volunteers for our Swap Circle for Teachers, January 19 - 29.

CCRx Swap Circles are pop-up events where businesses donate surplus office + art supplies, furniture, fabric, books and more and Chicago teachers can come "shop" for free.   

Volunteers help organize donations and help teachers "shop".  It is a lot of fun, and volunteers can get dibs on some of the items!​ 

Highlights so far are 13 pallets of brand new Scholastic Books, loads of Washi Tape, some big projectors, lots of fabric and yarn, giant bags of adhesive spongy things and green plastic mesh, and who knows what else we will get for Chicago teachers?    Only one way to find out -- sign up and lend a hand.   

Meals are provided for volunteers.
