This year 2 Works for You and Carr & Carr Attorneys are hosting the 2 Cares for the Community Back 2 School Backpack Drive benefiting Project Elf July 20th through August 7th.
Viewers can donate new backpacks, new underwear and new socks starting July 20th at 2 Works for You Studios or ONLINE.
As students get ready to go back to school, many families can't afford to get their children the basics.
Backpacks are expensive, new socks and underwear are costly to replace as they wear out. School counselors and social workers around Tulsa are constantly in need of these items for their students.
Project Elf helps. In its 14th year, the nonprofit strives to maintain an inventory of supplies to fill requests from 99 schools in the Tulsa area, including Tulsa Public Schools, Union Public Schools, charter schools and private schools.
The Project Elf inventory is a result of donations from the community.
