Back-to-school costs can be challenging for many families, but this school year in particular poses a whole new challenge as online learning costs can be crippling. With the majority of students expected to return to the classroom virtually, Fulton Homes is proudly brining its annual “School Supplies for Small Fries” program across the Valley from August 3rd -30th.
“Education is a core value for all of us at Fulton Homes, and has been a cause that we always stand up to support. We want to help bridge the gap between what families can afford and what students need.” said Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. “These supplies and donations go a long way in helping children be ready for the school year.”
The Fulton Homes School Supplies for Small Fries is now celebrating its 21st year. Formerly called “Stuff the Bus,” this program is conducted in partnership with KMLE 107.9. KMLE 107.9 will invite listeners to donate online to help send school supplies to those in need. With all donations benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, KMLE Morning Show Host JP Allen will invite listeners make a donation online at KMLE 1079.com through clicking on the Fulton Homes School Supplies for Small Fries icon. In addition, parents will be invited to enter to win a month of free Wi-Fi service with a $100 Visa gift card. One winner will be picked each week. The campaign will culminate with a ZOOM call with Fulton Homes and KMLE for a virtual check presentation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.
Fulton Homes started the back to school program in 1999. Over the last 20 years, the Tempe-based homebuilder and its Fulton Family Foundation Homes has invested more than $2.5 million on local campaigns for education, water safety, pet care, energy efficiency and more.
