    JOIN NBC4 AND OUR SPONSORS TO SUPPORT BACKPACKS 4 KIDS

    Back to school after summer vacation -- what an exciting time for children as they look forward to their new classes, seeing new friends and shopping for school supplies! However, this can be a challenge for children in need. Being prepared with a new backpack and school supplies boosts a child's self-esteem and helps him feel like a regular kid. With the help of Apple Federal Credit Union, NBC4 is collecting new backpacks and supplies to be distributed to needy students in the community.

    We are collecting backpacks, supplies and donations.
