Pack To School Drive

The drive runs from Monday, July 29 to Sunday, Aug. 11.

Back to school is a time of excitement and new beginnings -- new friends, new teachers, new classrooms, and new supplies. Unfortunately, for many children school supplies are a luxury and many go without the necessary materials to succeed in school. Sometimes the only difference between an A+ student and a failing student is having basic supplies to do homework and participate in class.

In partnership with The Shops at Pembroke Gardens and Tiger Direct, NBC 6 is holding a back-to-school supply drive to help kids in our community have the tools they need to do well in the upcoming school year. Your donation of school supplies will have an immediate and profound impact in a child’s life.The drive runs from Monday, July 29 to Sunday, Aug. 11.
