Help FOX 29 "stuff the bus" for local school kids in need, Friday, August 8th. Come on down to the studio at 4th and Market Streets in Philadelphia from 7 to 10am during "Good Day Philadelphia" to donate back-to-school supplies for local children in low-income households.
Let's help all area school kids kick the school year off right! We've partnered with United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Cradles to Crayons to collect and stuff 22,000 backpacks with school supplies to distribute to children in need throughout the region.
Supplies needed include:
-Crayons, colored pencils
-3-ring binder with dividers
-Pencils, pens and erasers
Parents from economically-challenged backgrounds often find it hard to provide their children with the most basic of school supplies. Regardless of income, all children deserve the chance to come to school prepared.
