John C. Coonley School’s giving spirit has grown outside the walls of Coonley. #CoonleyCares provides an opportunity for our community to support CPS students in need throughout the city. As part of the Coonley Parent Organization (including Friends of Coonley and the PTO), #CoonleyCares is dedicated to educational enrichment for all students. #CoonleyCares donations support the following efforts:
Literacy: Reilly Elementary School, located in the Avondale neighborhood, does not have adequate funds for library books for its students. Reilly’s enrollment is 94.3% low income and is in great need of more books to meet students’ basic literacy needs. You can also support Reilly’s library by buying the books here: Reilly Wishlist (these are sent directly to the school).
Music: Foundations of Music is a local organization that helps more than 7,000 students in more than 30 Chicago Public Schools gain exposure to music education. Each week, Foundations of Music provides over 550 CPS students with direct music instruction.
Your generosity toward #CoonleyCares will help raise important funds for literacy and music in schools with very few resources. All donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your generosity.
