It’s time for the annual 88Nine Radio Milwaukee No Empty Backpacks school supply drive! You can donate to support local students through Aug. 23.
With many of our local districts opting to start school remotely, 88Nine is making a slight change to this year’s collection. Donations are being collected online and will go toward putting together a supply kit for students at eight MPS elementary schools. The kits include general school supplies (e.g., pencils, erasers, crayons, etc.), a backpack, and a lap desk.
The schools receiving donations this year are:
- Brown Street Academy: 2029 N 20th St, Milwaukee, WI 53205
- Emerson Public School: 9025 W Lawrence Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53225
- Engleburg Public School: 5100 N 91st St, Milwaukee, WI 53225
- Morgandale Elementary School: 3635 S 17th St, Milwaukee, WI 53221
