North Chicago Community Partner’s continued efforts to support the North Chicago School District 187 during the pandemic were featured in a WTTW News article, North Chicago Nonprofit Gives Students In-Person Support During Remote Learning.
Since 2008, North Chicago Community Partners has provided supplemental assistance to North Chicago students and families in need through donations of food, school supplies and clothing as well as guidance and supervision.
That support now extends to the challenges associated with remote learning.
“We’re not here to teach – that’s what the educators do,” said Jennifer Grumhaus, who started the nonprofit in 2008. “We’re here to wrap around the educators and the families, to make sure students, when they come to school, are fed, to make sure they’re equipped, to make sure they’re affirmed and to provide lunchtime and after-school remedial support.”
