During our recent Summer Sizzle, KPFT partnered with 5th Ward Head Start to donate backpacks to them for the start of school. For every $1,000 pledged during that drive , KPFT donated a backpack with school supplies, socks & underwear to the program. So far the station has distributed 34 of these.

KPFT staff visited 5th Ward Head Start on August 28, and here’s a video of the incredibly cute kids receiving their backpacks.
