No Empty Backpacks Continues Through August 27th

Thank you to everyone that has donated so far to No Empty Backpacks!

Educators Credit Union and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee need your help to make sure there are no empty backpacks when kids head back to school in September.

The radio station, credit union and other community partners are teaming up to host school supply drives throughout August. Visit Educators’ Appleton Avenue, Center Street, Loomis, Glendale, Park Place, or Prospect branches and drop your supplies in the No Empty Backpacks bin.

After the drive, the supplies will be distributed to the following Milwaukee Public Schools:

  • Carson Academy of Science
  • Thurston Woods Elementary School
  • Victory School
  • Mitchell Elementary School
  • Hi Mount Community School
  • Lancaster School

Need some help coming up with a list of supplies to donate? 88Nine has created an Amazon Wish List with some suggestions.

Hurry in to make your donation. The bins leave on August 27.
