On Saturday, September 5th, Girls Are p.e.a.r.l.s. had the pleasure of putting on a Back to School event with KIPP Academy Chicago and Taco Sublime. Thanks to generous donations from Touch Gift Foundation, Imperfect Produce, Aurora Interfaith Pantry, Burst Into Books and Native Tongue Magazine, we were able to provide the community with over 700 pounds of produce, 150 bags of pantry items, essentials including soap and deodorant, books and FREE tacos. We also registered community members to vote! A great time was had by all and we can’t wait until our next Girls Are p.e.a.r.l.s. Presents event!
