10 On Your Side’s Operation School Supplies is an annual WAVY-TV 10 effort to collect school supplies so students in need can start the year with the tools they need to be successful. It’s been going strong for more than two decades and continues to grow each year.
Farm Fresh joins WAVY-TV 10 again this year to help collect much-needed school supplies. Forty Farm Fresh stores will take part. We’ll report live from different Farm Fresh stores, on The Hampton Roads Show at 11 a.m. and WAVY News 10 Midday each Friday in August.
NEW this year, we’ll try stuffing a ‘moving van’ full of collected school supplies each week. Harrison’s Moving & Storage joins in on the fun as the official delivery and storage partner for 10 On Your Side’s Operation School Supplies. And, MaxMedia Radio is our official radio partner again this year, helping spread the important message to listeners of 97.3 The Eagle, HOT 100.5 and 92.9 The Wave. Look for their LIVE remotes at various locations across Hampton Roads throughout August and do your part by donating school supplies.
Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast will take part helping sort collected items for each of the 12 participating school districts. It’s no easy task, these girl scouts earn a badge for all their hard work!
Last year, more than 50,000 items made their way to hundreds of classrooms across our area. Our goal this year is to meet and beat that total.
