Cradles to Crayons Shoe and School Supply Donation Drive Held at Winnetka Office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago Through August 24

The Winnetka office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago will hold a shoe and school supply donation drive for Cradles to Crayons through August 24. Members of the community are invited to drop off new shoes and school supplies at 839 Elm Street Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. The mission of Cradles to Crayons is to provide children from birth through age 12 with the everyday essentials they need to thrive - at home, at school, and at play. The most requested items include notebooks, folders, pencils, rulers, scissors, crayons, glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, erasers, and backpacks.

Kevin Rynes, Managing Broker of the Winnetka office, said, "The start of a new school year holds so much promise and we want to help kids feel ready and excited to go to school and learn. We are hoping to share a robust collection with Cradles to Crayons to boost their efforts. Thank you, in advance, for your kind donations. I'd also like to thank you our Kindness Foundation Ambassador, Stacy Burgoon, for spearheading this activity."
