Cornerstone Community Outreach hosted a huge back-to-school event on Wednesday, August 15. Chicago Public School generously provided a new uniform and school supply kit for each of our school age children. Everyone enjoyed treats from Ann Sathers provided by Alderman Tom Tunney. A new toy, face painting and pizza got everyone in the party mood! Kuumba Lynx, a young adults dance troop, pumped up the volume with live poetry and dance performances. Alderman James Cappleman attended the event and encouraged the children to have a great school year. He expressed his appreciation for the parents who live at CCO and the services the shelter provides. The Cat-in-the-hat made a special appearance and encouraged the kids to do their best in the coming school year. The children of CCO each got a new pair of shoes for the upcoming school year thanks to Senator Heather Stearns. We want to say a special thanks to everyone who made this event special! Thank you!
