Time is running out to help some deserving kids receive the school supplies they need to get off to a great start this year.
Help Eyewitness News in our “Tools for School” for school drive that wraps up Friday.
Donations of school supplies have been coming in, but we want to see our studios filled with contributions so keep those contributions rolling. Students from grade school up to high school age in Kanawha, Cabell and Boone counties will benefit from the campaign, sponsored by Ford and Catholic Charities of Charleston.
The station is collecting a variety of school supplies such as backpacks, pens, pencils, notebook paper, notebooks and crayons. Collected items will be turned over to the school systems for distribution. Parents should check with their local school system if their kids need supplies.
Donations may be dropped off during business hours Monday through Friday at our studios in Charleston, 1301 Piedmont Road, and in Huntington, 1002 Fourth Ave.
Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause, so all local kids have a chance to really do well in the classroom.
