San Jose, CA – Mix 106.5 KEZR and 94-5 Bay FM KBAY are teaming up with Child Advocates of Silicon Valley to provide much needed resources for foster children during this especially challenging school year. The stations are soliciting donations to Child Advocates Laptops for Learning-Back to School Drive. The items they need include: laptops, headphones, markers, crayons, construction paper, folders, erasers, pencil sharpeners and calculators. Listeners can donate directly through station websites mymix1065.com and 945bayfm.com or at https://childadvocatessv.org/backtoschool/.

“Distance learning is hard on everyone, children, teachers, parents, but it’s especially difficult for our foster children,” said Frederick J. Ferrer, CEO of Child Advocates of Silicon Valley. “Many of our foster youth are starting the school year in need of laptops and basic school supplies. This drive will ensure they get the resources they need to succeed in a virtual classroom. We are extremely grateful for everyone’s support.”

“It’s a pleasure to partner again with Child Advocates right here in Silicon Valley to help support foster families and our community. We appreciate our listeners’ generosity and community support” said Dave Numme Content Director, Alpha Media San Jose.
