In partnership with Pangea Cares, Illinicare Health, and other community partners, Chicago Sky Cares will be holding a Back to School Resource Fair at Malcolm X College from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 24.
To celebrate Back to School, Chicago Sky is bringing a great variety of resources to the community. The resource fair will offer school supplies, free haircuts, housing information, state ID cards, vision and dental screening, educational sessions, and more. The event is a precursor to the Clean Slate Summit in January 2020 in which court officials, city administration, attorneys and the city clerk’s office, will offer Chicagoans the resources and legal guidance needed to expunge their juvenile court records.
During the resource fair, attendees will be able prepare documentation for the expungement process and register for the upcoming Clean Slate Summit.
Pangea Cares invites its residents to attend and utilize the resources offered during the resource fair. Additionally, Pangea will host a booth with leasing agents that will provide information on both rental apartments and job opportunities.
“We think what the Chicago Sky is doing for the community is great and we support it wholeheartedly. A juvenile record can limit future opportunities such as getting a job or going to college and oftentimes, people are unaware of the resources available to them. We are bringing job opportunities and housing information directly to the community and hope to make a positive impact. This event and the upcoming summit are exactly what is needed to make a change and we are proud to be a sponsor of Clean Slate Summit next year,” said Chanelle Cromwell, Programs Director for Pangea Cares.
The event is open to the public and free parking is available. To register, please visit https://tinyurl.com/y49b4slc.
