Volunteer at Swap Circle for Teachers | Creative Chicago Reuse Exchange (CCRx)

We need Movers + Shakers for our Swap Circle for Teachers.

The event is a huge supply give away and we need your help for it to run smoothly! You can sign up for multiple shifts, all day, on-going, or one time slots, If you are OCD and like organizing things, or like interacting with teachers, this opportunity is for you!
