Back-to-School Drive Telethon 2019

Join WKMG News 6 and A Gift For Teaching to get results for our local students in need.

More than 70% of children in Central Florida cannot afford lunch, let alone school supplies. Together, we can make a change. Click here to see how much!

On Thursday, August 15th, from 5:00am – 7:30pm, tune in to WKMG News 6 to watch your favorite anchors, family, friends, and coworkers answer hundreds of calls to raise $25,000 to provide essential supplies for local teachers and students in our community.

How can you help? Dial 1-888-436-6665 during the Back-to-School Drive Telethon to see who picks up your call!

For every $1 received, up to $10 worth of supplies can go back into the classroom for local students this school year. Thanks to generous matching funders, every gift received on August 15th will be eligible to be DOUBLED, to provide up to $20 worth of supplies from A Gift For Teaching!

But that’s not all!

Any caller that donates $50 or more will be entered to win a “News 6 VIP Experience.”

The winner and up to three guests will receive a personal tour of the station, watch a live broadcast of News 6 at Noon, and have lunch with some of the News 6 talent!

Winner will be drawn and contacted by A Gift For Teaching after all contributions are collected.
