Cornerstone Community Outreach

The NEIU Alumni Association is partnering with the Cornerstone Community Outreach Center to help make a difference in the lives of students with extremely limited economic resources in our community. Join the NEIUAA Backpack Drive to collect backpacks for over 150 students who are without permanent housing from Cornerstone Community Outreach. In-person and online donations are needed by Wednesday, August 23, 2017.

There are two easy ways to give:

  • Drop off backpacks at the Northeastern Illinois University Alumni Center, or

  • Donate funds and allow us to purchase the backpacks on your behalf (please select designation as "NEIUAA Backpack Drive” and be sure to mark "Yes" under "Backpack Donation"). The cost of a backpack is around $15-35. 

Beyond supporting this community initiative, we would like to offer you materials for your classroom if you are an educator. We can send along a Northeastern Illinois University spirit kit, which includes pennants and pens. Show your school pride and help us promote the value of a quality education from Northeastern. You can fill out this request form

Lastly, you can help us recruit future teachers by scheduling a group visit. Group visits to NEIU are complimentary and include a student-lead campus tour.  Learn more or schedule a group visit for your school or students.

Thank you for giving back to the community and for promoting your alma mater in your classroom.
