School Tools

Partner with us for our School Tools drive benefitting The Salvation Army.  Together we can help local kids get a great start to the school year with the supplies they’ll need to be a part of a successful learning environment.

The Salvation Army Austin Area Command Back to School Drive provides school supplies and school clothes for more than 100 local children living in emergency shelters. When you think of homelessness, you may not think of women and children, but the reality is that 75% of those sheltered by The Salvation Army last year in Austin were women and children. Children living in emergency shelters attend school just like other children, but unlike most children, they often don’t have what they need to thrive.

You can help. Donating is easy! July 21st- August 10th, just find us at one of our SPIRIT community events listed below or feel free to bring supplies to the radio station weekdays from 9-5PM. We’re located at 3600 N. Capital of Texas Highway Austin, TX 78746.
