Operation School Supplies 2016

Help Kids Get A Successful Start
Operation School Supplies is an annual WAVY-TV 10 effort to collect school supplies for students from across Hampton Roads and in North Carolina. It is our mission to ensure every child starts the year off successfully. Last year, nearly 40,000 items were donated for children in need. To learn how your district can participate click here.

The end of summer is near and so is the start of a new school year. On July 29th WAVY-TV 10, Farm Fresh and Kam Kares Foundation will kick-off Operation School Supplies, an annual initiative aimed at collecting school supplies for children in need throughout the Hampton Roads community. School supplies are collected throughout the month of August and then donated to local school districts where they are distributed to eligible students. Collections will continue through August 26th.

New this year! WAVY-TV 10 and Farm Fresh will combine efforts with Hampton Roads native and Super Bowl Champion Kam Chancellor and his charity Kam Cares Foundation. The community partners are hosting a kick-off celebration on July 29th in Norfolk, to generate excitement and awareness about the need for school supplies throughout our region. WAVY News 10 Anchor Don Roberts will assist the Kam Kares Foundation in handing out backpacks filled with school supplies to pre-selected children and Farm fresh will host a buffet style lunch.

Help make sure every child in our community has a strong start this school year by dropping off supplies at any of our participating locations. You can also stop by and drop off donations during one of our “Stuff the Bus” events listed below. While you’re there, meet the WAVY News 10 Today team as they report LIVE from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Plus, you can enter for your chance to win a variety of autographed football memorabilia. The first 25 who make a donation at a “Stuff the Bus” event will receive a signed autograph from Kam Chancellor.

School supplies needed include: backpacks, three-ring binders, calculators, notebooks, coloring pencils, markers, crayons, protractors, compasses, glue, scotch tape, rulers, paper (wide and college ruled), pencils, pens, highlighters, index cards, folders, scissors, erasers and items for the classroom such as tissues and hand sanitizer.
