For four years now, WLOX has partnered with area schools and businesses in the "Supply Our Schools" campaign. It's our way to make sure no child has to start the school year without the basic supplies that they all need. And it is making a difference!
Read this letter that one local teacher sent us after a previous "Supply Our Schools" campaign:
Thank you for the much needed school supplies. One of my students was the recipient of these materials.
He was so proud to enter the classroom with a bookbag full of supplies. He came in to the classroom smiling and showing all of the kids his new stuff.
Last year, this same student had a hard time getting on the right foot because he didn't have the supplies he needed. The lack of supplies hurt his self-esteem and caused him to feel "not good enough."
Thanks for making this year a success from the beginning. Together we can make a difference.
