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 this July, join us as we begin Supporting Our Schools.
For the first time, NBC Boston, necn, Telemundo Boston and 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.
We’ll be telling stories through the end of July from Boston and beyond to raise awareness about what can be done to help students and teachers thrive.
Visit Donors Choose to donate directly to public school classroom projects or stop by the below locations to drop off donations of backpacks, pens/pencils, notebooks and other school supplies at the NBC Boston Treat Truck.
