Donate Back-to-School Gear and be on TV August 25

If you or your company would like to donate back-to-school items to Chicago-area kids going back to class, NBC-5's Katherine Janicek wants to hear about it. You can donate live on TV at NBC's Studio 5 Plaza in Chicago next week, August 25 from 5-7 a.m., and get a mention (depending on how large the donation is.)

Contact Kathryn Janicek, Daypart Manager, NBC 5 News Today at or 312-836-5737 to follow up.

This just in from Kathryn Janicek...

Here are examples of school supplies I am told the children need:
  • Backpacks
  • Solar powered alarm clocks
  • Ballpoint pens
  • #2 pencils
  • Pencil sharpeners
  • Spiraled notebooks
  • Folders
  • Filler paper
  • Crayons
  • Colored pencils
  • Erasers
  • Supply cases/boxes
  • Protractors
  • Rulers
  • Flash drives
  • Weekly planners
Please let me know if you'd like to donate live on next Wednesday's show -- and I'll make sure to carve out time for your company.
