On January 1, 2018, We Are Creed was officially incorporated by the state of Illinois (our 501(c)(3) status did not arrive until December 2018).
Whether you’re interested in donating before the end of 2019 or to kick off the start of 2020, We Are Creed would appreciate the support.
In 2019, We Are Creed:
– Sent 180 children to a bookstore to choose their own books with our gift cards
– Provided over 200 new books to at-risk classrooms or classrooms with new teachers
– Shared 6 boxes of gently used donated books to schools and a foster care agency so new children can love them
– Delivered 1 box of books and pajamas to a family that lost everything in a fire
In 2020, We Are Creed has some plans to:
– Coordinate with Girl Forward in Chicago to give books to students and their mentors to support reading together
– Supply 180 gift cards to foster care children — and possibly more
– Find schools in IL, AZ, and SC to donate books
