Today is the final day for our "Tools for School" drive and we need your help to make sure that West Virginia children go back to school prepared.
While Eyewitness News has already received numerous donations, we need more to help students from grade school up to high school age. Students in Kanawha, Cabell and Boone counties will benefit from the campaign, sponsored by Ford and Catholic Charities of Charleston.
We are accepting a variety of school supplies such as backpacks, pens, pencils, notebook paper, notebooks and crayons. Catholic Charities also is collecting supplies at its locations.
The donated 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 through today at our studios in Charleston, 1301 Piedmont Road, and in Huntington, 1002 Fourth Ave.
Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause, so West Virginia students have a chance to be prepared for excellence in the classroom.
