NBC4 Southern California and Telemundo 52 are teaming up with the Los Angeles County Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs to launch Supporting Our Schools, a campaign aimed at providing school supplies to more than 100,000 youth in need before they embark on a new school year.
From July 17 through July 29, join the effort and donate school supplies to your local Boys & Girls Club. Supplies received will support every child across more than 20 participating clubs throughout the region.
"Every year, teachers pay for classroom supplies their students will need out of their own pocket while students and their families weigh the costs of paying for school supplies and other household financial needs," said Valarie Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.
To help address these needs, our NBC and Telemundo stations are hosting 'Supporting our Schools,' a month-long awareness campaign to help raise awareness about classroom needs and what communities can do to help local educators and school-bound children. 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."
On Saturday, July 29 starting at 7 a.m. visit the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena to donate school supplies and meet NBC4 Today in LA Reporter Annette Arreola, NBC4 Sports Anchor and Reporter Mario Solis, a Boys & Girls Club alumnus, as well as anchors from Telemundo 52 Los Angeles.
Boys & Girls Clubs assist youth ages 6 to 18 by providing after school resources and programs to help them prepare for college and reach their full potential.
