I stopped in at the new FUEL Cafe south location on 5th Street and saw a donation box for the 88Nine Radio Milwaukee Second Annual No Empty Backpacks School Supplies Driveto benefit Milwaukee Public Schools students.
In a partnership with Milwaukee Business Journalfor the month of August, donation bins will be at Radio Milwaukee in Walker’s Point, Milwaukee Business Journal, BelAir Cantina locations and select Educators Credit Union locations.
