For our September meeting, we will donate our in kind Donation of school supplies to CPS Students in Temporary Living Situations. This organization accepts all types of schools supplies. Our monetary donation will go to The American Cancer Society.
Educational Support for Students in Temporary Living Situations (STLS) offers assistance to students in pre-kindergarden-12th grade and their families who are experiencing homelessness. The STLS program is dedicated to ensuring that students in temporary living situations have equal access to the same free and appropriate educational opportunities as students who are permanently housed. This commitment to the educational rights of children and youth in temporary living situations applies to all services, programs and activities provided or made available by CPS.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer. Its activities include providing grants to researchers, including funding 46 Nobel Laureate researchers, discovering the link between smoking and cancer, and serving one million callers every year through its National Cancer Information Center.
The Community Service Committee will be accepting school supplies at the door and please be on the lookout for the canisters on your tables during lunch for monetary donations.
With your support, the Community Service Committee hopes to make this the biggest year for donations in CALL history!
Registration: 11:30 am to noon; Lunch: noon
The Community Service Committee will be taking collections to raise money for The American Cancer Society and receiving donations for school supplies which will be given to CPS students in temporary living situations.

As we ease into summer, we wrap up another year for CALL and the CALL Bulletin. The summer issue of the Bulletin, available here: http://new.chicagolawlib.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/CALLBulletinsummer_2013_final.pdf features Pam Cipkowski’s summary of the AALL Management Institute, which not only serves as an illustration of what this annual program provides, but also as an example of the importance of CALL grants to the professional development of our membership. If the Institute sounds interesting to you, take Pam’s advice and apply for a CALL grant!
What does “public relations” mean to you? Deborah Rusin provides her perspective that this question is not only important to our institutions, but also to each of us as individuals. And, Gail Hartzell provides an introduction to Cardinal IP, the sponsor of CALL’s February Business Meeting.
This issue marks the end of Margaret Schilt’s tenure as Co-Editor of the CALL Bulletin; she shares her parting thoughts in this issue’s Editors’ Column as she prepares to embark on new and exciting adventures as CALL Vice President/President-Elect. And Kevin McClure sings his swan song in praise of the Community Service Committee as outgoing committee co-chair. He remains as Co-Editor of the Bulletin, as we welcome Lyonette Louis-Jacques as Co-Editor going forward.
Enjoy summer, and the Summer issue of the Bulletin!
Margaret Schilt and Kevin McClure, Co-Editors
