WGGB Seeks Support for 40 Force School Drive
SPRINGFIELD — It’s near that time when local families begin preparing for the school year ahead by visiting local stores for their supplies. However, for some students in the area, financial hardships make it difficult for them to start the year with the right tools. To address this need, ABC40 has created the 40 Force School Drive.
From markers, crayons, and pencils to rulers, notebooks, and even backpacks, the station will be collecting school supplies at its studios at 1300 Liberty St. in Springfield from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Donations will help students in Springfield get a great start to the new school year.
