Care For Real, residents and Northside Toyota provide school supplies to Edgewater students

300 needy students at Edgewater schools started their school year off right with donated backpacks complete with school supplies through Care For Real. The backpacks and supplies were donated by community members and Bob Loquercio of Northside Toyota, while Care For Real volunteers filled them and distributed them in coordination with State Senator Heather Steans’, Representative Harry Osterman’s and Alderman Mary Ann Smith’s offices. Each backpack contained all the necessary supplies required by the students’ schools, which can add up to $100 for elementary students and $175 for high school students. Kudos to all involved!
