On Thursday, FOX5 accepted donations of new school supplies live on the air for our annual Supply Our Students Drive.
The donations were accepted at NV Energy from 6 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. We received thousands of items from the community, but we need more to reach our goal of supplying 1,000 students with backpacks and all the supplies they'll need for the first day of school.
The Salvation Army will be distributing the donations to families in need. FOX5 began accepting live donations again on Friday at McDonald's on Eastern Avenue and Sunset Road. Donations will be accepted until 6:30 p.m.
You can also make a donation at any one of the 85 McDonald's locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley until August 12.
