CHICAGO — Chicago Public Schools are teaming up with Groupon, the popular deal-of-the-day website, for a great cause.

The Chicago school system is encouraging people to pledge funds for back-to-school kits for the city’s low-income students on the website.

The city plans to donate 6,000 kits on its own, but is also asking Chicagoans to pledge increments of $12 dollars for the kits, which include glue, erasers, markers, storybooks, notebooks, rulers and pencils.
