We’re still not sure when School will start for Philadelphia Public School Students. What we do know is when it does the majority of kids face the possibility that they won’t have the basic tools they need because their parents are struggling. That’s why last Saturday Power 99 FM and WDAS FM joined together for our annual “Tools for Schools” campaign in partnership with Cradles to Crayons and United Way. By the time our live broadcasts in front of the Forman Mills at 3500 Aramingo Avenue were done a yellow school bus donated by Universal Companies was filled with school supplies.
Beautiful day - generous listeners. If you want to keep on helping - donate or volunteer at Cradles to Crayons. Their vision "... is that one day every child will have the essentials they need to feel safe, warm, ready to learn and valued." Check them out at www.cradlestocrayons.org. To keep up with all the work we do in the community be sure to follow me on Twitter @loraineballard. I love my job.
