This holiday season 37signals is partnering with our new neighbors in the West Loop of Chicago to gift the children of William Brown Elementary School with new clothes and toys.

William Brown Elementary currently reports 96% of its students receiving public aid, and we’ve committed along with Converse, Hurley, Soul City Church, the Kyle Korver Foundation and many other local companies to create a Christmas store. Families can purchase new, donated items for Christmas gifts at crazy low prices, and all proceeds will go directly back into Brown Elementary.

For our part, 37signals will be collecting new toys (not in wrapping paper) at our Chicago Office until December 17.

You can drop off your toys and good cheer to our office between 10am and 5pm, Monday-Friday. [MAP]

We’re excited to join with our neighbors for this great cause, and hope all local friends of 37signals will join in too!

The Christmas Store event takes place the December 18, 9-12pm at Soul City Church. All profits from the store are being donated back into Brown Elementary.
