EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Some people in Eau Claire made sure kids have what they need for the start of the school year.
The annual Back to School Bucks Drive was held Thursday at the United Bank on Golf Road in Eau Claire. The event was hosted by News Talk 790 WAYY.
The drive is coordinated by the Boys and Girls Club and helps raise money for backpacks and school supplies.
Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club Sara Antonson told us Thursday “We so appreciate the help and I just want to encourage everybody to help the kids because every child deserves to start off school with confidence and with the right supplies and that's how we're going to help our kids have a better future.”
