Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx) is setting up shop at Envision Unlimited's Frick Center. We'll be assembling shelves, moving tables, hanging signs and unpacking inventory. Do you have a couple hours to lend a hand? Shifts are available from 9:30 am - 2 pm. There'll be snacks and volunteers get dibs. Please pick your dates/times here. ------------
The Envision Unlimited Frick Center is a big warehouse space with parking and a loading dock, a beautiful garden, art studios and lots of opportunities to grow. It is located at 2124 W 82nd Place, where we had our most recent Swap Circle for Teachers last January. Envision Unlimited supports adults with disabilities and we are excited to be able to work with their members and dedicated staff.
Once we set up, CCRx will be open all summer on Wednesdays from 12 - 6 p.m., Fridays 11 - 2 p.m. and Saturdays 10 - 2 p.m. to take in supply donations, sort and organize them for Chicago teachers, nonprofits, artists and community groups to find the resources they need. Volunteer shifts are available at those times and volunteers get dibs. School's Out Green Out! Locker + Classroom Clean-Out Drive is this month, so you can be the first to see what treasures we get from schools throughout Chicago and the suburbs. Please pick your dates/times: ------------
IF you want to coordinate with your school to develop an internship, please contact Barbara K, the Executive Director. ------------
