    Supporting Our Schools: How You Can Help Students and Teachers Thrive

    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 6 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.

    “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. To help address these needs, our NBC and Telemundo stations are hosting “Supporting our Schools,” a monthlong awareness campaign to help raise awareness about classroom needs and what communities can do to help local educators and school-bound children," said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. "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.”

    Supporting Our Schools

    This July we're Supporting Our Schools by collecting supplies and donations to help students and teachers get access to the materials they need to have a successful school year. Learn how to donate.

    We’ll be telling stories through the end of July from South Florida and beyond to raise awareness about what can be done to help students and teachers thrive.

    You can find places to donate locally below, or visit Donors Choose to donate directly to public school classroom projects.

    Dadeland Mall at the Simon Guest Services, located in front of The Cheesecake Factory in the main entrance.
