Now through August 16, please join KVUE in helping Austin area children get the tools they need to start off the school year right.

This is the 25th year of the For the Children school supply drive. Look for the scan cards at HEB checkout stands to make a donation.

For The Children is a volunteer run organization – 100% of your donation goes to purchase supplies for children in 10 local school districts. The program benefits more than 57,000 pre-K through 4th grade children who qualify for the federally-funded free and reduced price lunch program.

The school supplies provided by For The Children help boost the child's self-esteem and confidence at the beginning of the new school year.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause on line, please visit the For The Children Donation Page

Visit www.schoolsuppliesforthechildren.org/ for more information.
