    Supporting Our Schools Jamba Event

    All too often, many students from low-income families don’t have the school supplies — pens, paper, notebooks and more — that they need to succeed in school. When a backpack for a first grader can cost as much as $60.00, you can see the dilemma as the expense amounts to two weeks of gas or a month's pass on public transit. Teachers struggle to fill the gap, often using their own money to help these kids keep up in class but it's not enough. The third annual Supporting our Schools campaign is back, NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 are working with Family Giving Tree to collect supplies and funds that will help students and teachers in need throughout the Bay Area. You can help.

    Stop by and meet folks from the NBC Bay Area News team on Friday, July 26 at Jamba in Mountain View (1037 A El Monte Ave.) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. when you drop off or build your own backpack. Donate on site and Pizza My Heart will give you one free slice of pizza!
