CREW Chicago 2018 CREW Careers Program

March 9, 2018
Hello Colleagues,  
It’s that time of year again! Planning for this year’s CREW Careers program is underway and it’s time for me to send out my annual request for all your great extra company goodies/swag to pack the girls backpacks for this year’s event!  
For those that don’t recall, I’m the co-chair of CREW Careers program for the Chicago Chapter of CREW ( ).   We partner with Off the Streets Club ( ) for four Tuesday’s in April to introduce young women the ages of 7th -12th grade about all careers in real estate (law, construction, design, brokerage, due diligence, title etc.).   I’ve attached a summary of our program last year that focused on retail.  This year’s program will be focusing on restaurants and sustainability in the food service industry.
Each year we try to send them home with a goodie bag full of items from school supplies to anything fun.    We only need about 30 items of whatever you can donate.   Previous donations have been items like notebooks, rulers, mini-staplers, book bags, water bottles, books, Frisbees, flashlights, head bands, lip glosses/chopsticks, t-shirts, pens/pencils, calculators, etc.
We are seeking donations of logo’ d “Swag” type items that we can share with the girls in this program If you’ve cleaned out your swag but are interested in participating with a cash donation, that is great and much appreciated.   We will use that towards food or additional school supplies.     
Please drop off or send donations by Friday March 23rd  to:
Attn: Cathy Tinker
Columbian Model & Exhibit Works, Ltd.
1528 W Adams 2nd floor
Chicago, Illinois 60607

We will be meeting at Cathy’s studio on March 28th to pack the goody bags.
Please feel free to forward to colleagues or others you think would be willing to help as well.  
Thank you again and have a good week!
