Q98-Five is excited to partner with KETV’s 7 Can Help Kids and The Salvation Army to invite you to make a difference in the lives of local children. Be a part of this year’s 7 Can Help Kids Back-To-School Backpack Program Presented by Methodist Health System. Since 1998 your generous donations have helped prepare more than 120,000 children for school.

The need continues to grow. Many local families continue to face economic hardships that prevent parents from purchasing school supplies for their children. Through partnerships with Methodist Health System, Kaplan University and McDonalds we are making it easier than ever for you to drop off a donation. Last year nearly 12,000 local children were helped by the 7 Can Help Kids Back-To-School Backpack Program Presented by Methodist Health System.
