Chicago Public School children received the school supplies donated by ASCLS members during 2018 Annual Meeting.

At the 2018 ASCLS Annual Meeting in Chicago, the Society collected school supplies and donations for the Rush Community Service Initiatives Program (RCSIP). They are the charitable arm of Rush University and Rush University Medical Center serving the greater west side of Chicago. RCSIP started in 1991 and is a robust interprofessional program with faculty and student volunteers from all four of Rush University’s colleges: Medical, Nursing, Allied Health, and Graduate.

Supplies collected at the Swissotel in Chicago were immediately distributed to Chicago Public School children at two Rush-sponsored back to school fairs. This allowed students to have the necessary supplies for the first day of school. Director of RCSIP Sharon Gates was on hand to receive the school supplies and expressed her gratitude that ASCLS does truly care.

Thank you to our generous members who donated to the 2018 Helping Other People Event (HOPE) Project.

The 2019 HOPE Project will benefit Classroom Central, which equips Charlotte, NC, students in need to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies to their teachers.
