All too often, kids don’t have the school supplies — pens, paper, notebooks and more — that they need to succeed in school. Teachers struggle to fill the gap without the resources they need.
So, join us as we begin Supporting Our Schools.
For the first time, NBC San Diego and Telemundo 20 along with other NBC- and Telemundo-owned television stations are partnering with several nonprofits, including Communities in Schools, DonorsChoose.org, United Way and Boys & Girls Club, to raise donations of supplies and cash.
"Education is the key that unlocks the doors to endless opportunities and I’m proud that our local teams are stepping up to the plate to help their neighbors and strengthen their communities,” said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.
We’ll be telling stories through the end of July from San Diego County and beyond to raise awareness about what can be done to help students and teachers thrive.
Stop by your nearest club to donate or join us for the NBC 7 School Supply Drive on Friday, July 28 from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. at 4635 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
