Event Description:

98.5 KLUC is collecting backpacks and other school supplies donations all this month to help almost 1,000 Vegas kids.

98.5 KLUC’s night talent Alex Davis aka A.D. started Backpacks 4 Class Acts, a program that drives community awareness and a solution to a growing problem in our valley.  Over a four week period (7/1-7/27), A.D. and the KLUC street team embark on a total of 8 drop-off events around the valley, collecting the backpacks and other requested items. On-air, online, and anywhere else he can grab the attention of those in our community who are willing to help, A.D. collects and collaborates with the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth for distribution in an effort to ensure that as many students have a new backpack to start the year as possible.
