CBS RADIO News-Talk KDKA-A/PITTSBURGH is teaming with THE EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP for a special event to kick off a "Crayons for Kids" initiative to help provide new school and classroom supplies to local schools in financial need.
The JULY 30th event will include a call center at the station's 84 LUMBER Theatre 8a-4p (ET) to answer questions and collect donations as well as an onsite collection at the station. The campaign will continue throughout AUGUST with on-location broadcasts.
Morning host LARRY RICHERT said, "When I first learned of the great need in our hometown I was shocked! THE EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP is such a lean and vital organization. With our help we can deliver on the basic needs of 30,000 plus school students who count on having the basics to learn and grow, starting with crayons! You can make a big difference… join us!"
