SSB Raises $4000 for C-24/7

From Citrus to Retro Sales, Social Service Board has worked hard to raise $4,000 to benefit C-24/7, a small organization in Chicago that takes care, feeds and tutors children after school. 
We're hoping that with our help, C-24/7 can expand into a larger facility to accommodate more children! 
A big thanks to Vivi for finding such a worthy organization to donate to!

What $150 Buys

Actually, here's (see photo) what $180 can do to make a difference for an organization's livelihood. Each co-head from Social Service Board can request up to $150 for any organization they sponsor. The money can be in the form of a check or supplies. For example, Amy and Sabrina spent less than two hundred dollars on a bounty of toys, games and other fun stuff for Rowe Elementary School.

If YOU want to make a request for YOUR specific organization, please consider the following:
  1. Certain organizations are not in need of additional funds. For example, ICRE receives money from the State of Illinois.
  2. Other organizations need funds for daily operational costs (like rent).
  3. Please make your request IN WRITING to Mr. Lawler or Mr. Bolos. Consult with your sponsors regarding how to deliver the funds or the supplies.
