Kids First Chicago Parent Advisory Board (PAB) members organized a laptop and school supply giveaway in Englewood through their organization, Something Good in Englewood, in partnership with Comp-U-Dopt.

Chicago Sun-Times covered the event, quoting PAB member Cherelle Bilal: "It is extremely important because now some kids will have their own computer dedicated for learning and won’t need to share it with their siblings. Each can dedicate themselves to learning without being bothered to share a computer.”
