CCSD59 EDUCATION FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
Our mission is to enhance the quality of education and increase community involvement by fostering partnerships that support excellence and innovation in Community Consolidated School District 59
CCSD59 Community Cares Closet
CCSD59’s Community Cares Closet (CCC) helps District 59 families in need of basic necessities. For no charge, qualifying families can shop the store for items they need. The District 59 Education Foundation, in partnership with CCSD59, would like your help to keep the Community Cares Closet stocked this school year, especially as we enter the cold months of winter.
The Community Cares Closet is in need of the following items for the upcoming winter season:
Pants for children, men & women (sweatpants, joggers, jeans, leggings, etc.)
Sweaters & long sleeve shirts for children, men & women
Winter coats for children, men & women
Snow boots & snow pants for children
Please note that no baby items/clothing are needed at this time. We encourage you to contribute any of the above clothing items that are CLEAN & NEW OR GENTLY USED CONDITION. Donated items can be dropped off at the Administration building. If you would like to contribute in a different way, you can also purchase items from our COS Amazon wish list and have them sent directly to the District. Any support you can provide, whether big or small, is greatly appreciated. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of our District 59 families.

WAYS TO SUPPORT
The District 59 Opportunity Fund was established to help District 59 families in need. During the height of COVID, the Opportunity Fund helped to feed countless families within our community. Earlier this year, two of our District 59 families experienced the sudden loss of a child. At this difficult time, the Education Foundation is offering support to the families through the Opportunity Fund, and we invite the community to contribute to the Fund to assist the families with their financial needs.
