AUSTIN, Texas — You can donate money this summer to help buy school supplies for Austin area children in need.
A school supply drive took place at the Ruby’s on 183 in North Austin Wednesday morning. For the Children is the nonprofit behind the drive and the goal is to help buy supplies for as many children in elementary school as they can.
So far, the group has raised $40,000 towards the cause. In 2018, the organization was able to raise about $100,000 and help more than 60,000 students.
The For the Children Drive kicked off in July and runs until Aug. 13. The organization has been doing this for 30 years.
Volunteers will be handing out supplies at the supply distribution on Saturday. It will be at Metz Elementary from 6:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Organizers said 100% of the money raised goes toward the cause. If you couldn't make it in person on Wednesday, you can donate online or at your local HEB.
