WTJM reports how back-to-school drive supports Milwaukee children

August 14, 2014

UW-Madison once again hosted a school supply drive at the Wisconsin State Fair, with this year's monetary donations of more than $10,000 nearly doubling last year's. School supply donations were also up over last year with 141 55-gallon bags collected, up from last year's 125 bags.

Following up on that success, WTMJ 4 -- Milwaukee’s NBC affiliate -- recently produced a report showing viewers where some of the supplies ended up and giving them a feel for how those supplies will help local children.

UW-Madison faculty, staff and students along with volunteers from the Wisconsin Alumni Association were on hand Aug. 6 to help with the drive as part of UW-Madison Day at the Wisconsin State Fair.

Among those helping to facilitate the drive was Beth Giles-Klinkner, the interim assistant dean for outreach and partnerships in the UW-Madison School of Education.
