CPS is teaming up with Groupon to help needy kids with back-to-school supplies.

Beginning Tuesday, donors can use Groupon to pledge at least $12 for school supplies kits that include pencils, notebooks, rulers, erasers, glue, and storybooks.

Chicago Public Schools officials say they hope to distribute 6,000 kits produced by Kits for Kidz, a Woodridge organization that helps low-income families.
