Strengthening Communities Through Schools

We envision communities in which race or zip code no longer predict educational outcomes, where neighbors collaborate to ensure that all children receive what they need to reach their fullest potential.

We had a great time working with AbbVie volunteers at Cradles to Crayons Chicago this week! Together, volunteers assembled over 12,000 backpacks full of school supplies! These backpacks will be distributed to thousands of  students all throughout the Chicagoland area. Not bad for 4 days of service! #AbbVieGivesBack

We’d like to take a moment to shout out the entire NCCP team, who has been working tirelessly for months to prepare for the Week of Possibilities. Coordinating two weeks of projects for thousands of volunteers is no small feat! Next week, dozens of projects will take place in and around North Chicago, each thoughtfully designed to uplift the people and spaces of the community. We are grateful for everyone who has helped us prepare for these events, and are so excited for the fun to begin! #WeAreNCCP

AbbVie volunteers had a blast sorting and packing books at Bernies Book Bank this week! The event was extra special for one volunteer, who shared that her children used to receive books from Bernie’s when they were younger! She enjoyed seeing where those books came from, and is already looking forward to returning to volunteer with her kids. Being able to witness full circle moments like this is just one of the many reasons why we love the Week of Possibilities! #AbbVieGivesBack
