Generous supporters of the campaign that provides needy Chicago families with back to school kits have contributed to the sell of more than 1,000 kits since Monday for the 2012-2013 school year.

The program sold more than 1,200 back to school kits, with a total of $15,000 in donations, for the 2011-2012 school year.

CPS CEO Jean-Claude Brizard thanked the supporters for their generosity in a statement Tuesday, and urged people to continue to donate in the next seven days.
