Wishes on Wheels helping Delta County students with back to school supplies

By  | 

ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Escanaba's General Federation of Women's Clubs has joined forces with WYKX, KIX Country, for the annual "Wishes on Wheels" campaign.

The groups collect school supplies throughout the month of August and then distribute them to area students who need a helping hand, getting ready to go back to school.

All types of supplies are needed, everything from protractors and pencils to backpacks and highlighters.

Mike Flavor is the host of the Mike Flavor Morning Show on WYKX and was out helping collect donations.

"The good part about it is that all the donations stay local. So what will happen is the GFWC will gather everything and get a list of the students that really need help and then it all stays here in Delta County."

The drop off spot for donations in Escanaba is "Positively" on Ludington Street. And if just feeling good about helping isn't enough, Positively will be giving a discount coupon to those who bring in a donation through August.
