It's hard to find something that's more summer than a Friday night baseball game, especially one with $1 hotdogs and an end-of-game fireworks show. We hope you'll join us at School Supply Night at McCormick Field, sponosred by Mix 96.5. We'll cheer on The Tourists as they take on the Greenville Drive and make a difference for local kids and teens.
Simply bring school supplies to ensure area students are ready to learn when they head back to classrooms in August. You'll get a free pair of tickets for the July 22 game ... a great incentive!
We've set a goal of 1,200 fully-stocked backpacks to make sure all students have a positive back-to-school experience. Get a list of needed supplies to stock a backpack or simply donate online and we will fill one for you.
Sometimes the difference between an A+ pupil and a failing student is having basic school supplies to do homework and participate in class. Nearly one in four children in our community live in poverty and can’t afford tools like notebooks, pencils, or backpacks to start the school year.
