Fulton Homes “Packs for Kids” Campaign Helps Every Child Go Back-To-School

Leading Arizona Homebuilder and KMLE Country 108 Join Forces for Back to School Drive

Fulton Homes, Arizona’s leading homebuilder, is partnering with KMLE Country 108 FM Radio for its annual school supply drive with the help of Facebook. This year’s drive runs from July 18-Aug. 14.

The average cost to send a child into the classroom with school-recommended supplies is approximately $474 for elementary school and $545 for middle school students, according to Huntington Banks Backpack Index for 2010. The report says this figure includes clothing, books and classroom materials.

Area residents will be asked to visit the KMLE Facebook page and adopt a child from the Tim & Willy Fun-dation. Each child adopted will receive a backpack of school supply items, preparing them for a successful school year.

“Fulton Homes is committed to guaranteeing that every student, regardless of background, is equipped with the tools they need to receive the best education possible,” said Fulton Homes CEO Douglas Fulton. “With the advent of the 2011 school year, families across the country spend more and more of their incomes as their children grow. It can be a very stressful process, and we are here to help.”
