Help us collect school supplies for those in need

INDIANAPOLIS -- We hope you'll join us at our annual school supply drive to help children in need across central Indiana.

We'll be collecting supplies from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 19 on Monument Circle in front of the Emmis building.

The most needed items are:

  • Pocket folders
  • Spiral binders
  • Loose leaf paper
  • Pens
  • Pencils

Donations can also be dropped off at RTV6, 1330 N. Meridian Street, during regular business hours. The deadline for drop off is July 21.

All of the items collected will go to Covering Kids & Families of Indiana.

"Our goal is to help those kids get ready on the first day, for school, with the basic school supplies," said Pam Humes, director of the organization. "If a kid goes to school and they don't have the basics to start, it has to have an impact on them. We don't want that to be the case for them. We want them to be healthy but also ready have the supplies that they need to go back to school."

Please share the message so we can help out those who need it this school year!
