Fulton Homes, KMLE Country 108 and the KMLE Facebook page sponsoring Back to School Drive
Summer is winding down, and children and parents alike are gearing up for another school year. In an effort to make sure that all valley students have a successful year, Fulton Homes and KMLE Country 108 have teamed up for their KMLE Packs for Kids drive. Beginning Monday, July 26, radio hosts Tim and Willy will be encouraging listeners to log onto the KMLE Country page on Facebook.com and select a child to provide for. The first 50 people to donate school supplies will receive a pass to Mesa Golfland/Sunsplash. The campaign runs through August 21, when a final event to collect donations will be held at the Mesa Golfland/SunSplash.
KMLE Packs for Kids is seeking generous contributions for school supplies such as pencils, notebooks and day planners, which they will fill backpacks with benefiting the Tim & Willy Kid’s FUN-dation. Tim and Willy will be providing the school supplies/backpacks to the 501-C3 Neighborhood Center, a charity in Downtown Phoenix that serves underprivileged children through various schools.
This year, Fulton Homes and KMLE Country 108 are turning to online social media giant Facebook.com to help reach fans and make donating a breeze. On the KMLE Country page, the Neighborhood Center will post the names and ages of 108 children, as well as their back-to-school needs. Each child’s true identity will be protected with an online Avatar for complete security. Listeners are encouraged to select a child from the site and purchase the items to donate to that student. The packs will be collected at the wrap-up event on Saturday, August 21 at Golfland/SunSplash in Mesa, which will feature a live broadcast from Tim and Willy. Donations will also be collected at the KMLE studios in downtown Phoenix throughout the campaign.
