Many families are struggling in the Columbus community. With high unemployment, and reduced meal programs in schools, many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective. In addition, schools across the country are facing severe budget cuts and lack the funding to purchase necessary supplies.


It is also a fact that the average teacher spends over $500 of their own money on school supplies. Let’s give them a break! Please come out to support the News 3: Teacher’s On Your Side Supply Drive. Below is a list of materials that many schools require for their children.  Any little bit helps!  WRBL will have two events where you can help the teachers and children of our community. Beneficiaries are local school districts.
