94.7 Fresh FM teamed up with UPS to help Houston-area students with a back to school drive.
Fresh invited listeners to drop off sorely needed school supplies at participating UPS locations in the DMV through September 17. UPS boxed up and shipped all the donations within three days, free of charge, so supplies arrive by the second week of school.
Sarah Pepper, who hosts the morning show on Fresh’s sister station in Houston, connected The Tommy Show with Clear Creek Independent School District, whose schools were hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey.
Listen to Sarah call in to The Tommy Show below:
Hear how local schools got involved in the drive…
…and how the first day of school went in Houston.
In fact, the Fresh Family collected nearly 8,000 lbs of school supplies to the Clear Creek school district! Hear from Julia Sterling of UPS below:
