School Supplies Drive

Benefit/Fundraiser

As part of the Little Red Schoolhouse Project, KXXO Mixx 96.1 is holding a Back-to-School Supplies and Fund Drive. Drop by their broadcast site at the corner of State and Washington in downtown Olympia with school supplies (such as lined paper, 3-ring binders, rulers, markers, child-size scissors, pencils, and smaller backpacks), coats or new socks and underwear (particularly boxer briefs), or cash to buy calculators, backpacks, and school supplies in bulk. Heritage Bank will match the first $2,500 donated. Donate cash and see your donation double. Olympia Orthopaedics and Evergreen Credit Union will match further contributions up to $1,000. Checks can be made out to Little Red Schoolhouse and mailed to: P.O. Box 6302, Olympia, WA 98507.
