FUEL kids studies in the RadioMilwaukee No Empty Backpacks Drive

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 Drive to benefit Milwaukee Public Schools students.

In a partnership with Milwaukee Business Journal for 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. FUEL isn't listed, but as a sister restaurant to BelAir they apparently are participating as well.

Your donations will help students at the following Milwaukee Public Schools:
  • Carson Academy of Science
  • Thurston Woods Elementary School
  • Victory School
  • Mitchell Elementary School
  • Hi Mount Community School
  • Lancaster School
No Empty Backpacks School Supplies Drive is presented by 88Nine and Milwaukee Business Journal with support from Michael Best & FriedrichCH Coakley,  Educators Credit Union.

You can view the School Supplies Amazon Wish List here.

So, shop, then stop - at one of the locations listed. If you need a cup of Joe on the way to work downtown, check out FUEL, or after work for some great food.
