Locations for Operation: Kid Equip School Supply Drive

OKE is an organization that supports almost 100,000 children in the Metro Detroit area. They provide them books, school supplies, some food and even hygiene. There are so many children (and their parents and teachers) that rely on the great work OKE does.

On Wednesday, July 10, 2013 their building flooded and they have to get rid of thousands of dollars worth of supplies. They need your help to have more supplies delivered. You see the supplies aren't the challenge...it's getting them delivered that is hard to afford. You can read more about the flood (including a nice piece that aired on Channel 7) HERE. You can also donate money directly to them on their website HERE.

Donations of school supplies or money will be accepted at multiple locations on Wednesday July 17

Rosie O'Grady's in Ferndale (279 W Nine Mile Ferndale) between 6-9 PM

Terry , I have some supplies I tried to drop off at Shields Wednesday night  but I got there too late, is there an alternate drop off time? should I just bring them to Tequila Bleu Tuesday?
