Skyway welcomed neighborhood students in wards 7, 8, 10 and 20 back to school with a donation of over 1,400 backpacks.
SCC partnered with Alderwomen Garza of the 10th ward and Alderman Harris of the 8th ward to distribute the donated backpacks during each ward’s annual “Back to School” picnic. Backpacks were donated directly to nominated schools in Alderman Mitchell’s 7th ward and Alderman Taylor’s 20th ward.
Later this year, SCC will continue its tradition of awarding nominated public schools in the 7th, 8th, 10th and 20th wards with monetary grants in support of unique student needs.
