Chicago Public Schools partners with Groupon for low income kids in Chicago

NBC Chicago – Because the children are our future and apparently the Chicago Public School system hasn’t done its homework on profitable partners to buddy up with, Groupon has announced it’s now taking donations on CPS’ behalf to provide school supplies to low-income students.

Basically, people can pony up $11 or $18 to give kids basic back-to-school kits or a kit and a backpack, respectively.

A lot has changed for Groupon since last year when CPS first partnered up with the daily deal company for a similar opportunity to be charitable. Last year, more than 1,200 students received kits when approximately $15,000 was donated through Groupon.
