Backpacks 4 Kids… Supplies still needed!

A big fat thank you to all the generous viewers who came out Apple Federal Credit Union to show support for our 7th Annual Backpacks 4 Kids. With your help we are going to be giving out thousands of bags filled with supplies to students who can’t afford them. I loved meeting our wonderful viewers and even convincing one to join Twitter! He did within an hour.. thanks Redell! Ruth and Rita are avid weekend morning show watchers– I loved getting to meet them in person. Then my old school friends like Sol and America came out to show the love.. donating and writing checks for the cause. We are blessed and so lucky to have you by our side. Thanks to Robert Sowell with Apple Federal Credit Union and Boxer from WMZQ for partnering up at the Kingstowne branch .. we had a blast!
