We built and delivered over 200 desks across Chicagoland. We started a new batch of 47 desks utilizing wood left over from other projects and new lumber subsidized by a Home Depot grant! We know that schools are reopening for in-person learning, but we also know that parents are keeping 50% of students home for remote learning. High-risk families need to limit their exposure to COVID-19. Chicago Community Tools, along with Life Quilt Foundation and Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago are making sure students have a desk of their own to learn remotely.
