IN/IL Backpack Giveaways

Merrillville and Chicago Back to School Events

This past weekend our Lerner & Rowe team held two amazing Back to School Backpack Giveaway events! We were able to give away 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to the communities of Merrillville, IN and Chicago, IL. Our drive-thru style events proved to be successful in efficiently and safely getting backpacks to families.

Thank you to our amazing staff who came out to help. Thank you to our partners at the Chicago Police Department and staff of Richard J. Daley Elementary Academy for your assistance and donation of space. And thank you to the staff at Hidden Lake Park and Ross Township for all of the assistance your teams provided.

We hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, and healthy school year!
