Notes @ The Blue, the only afternoon live music series in downtown Milwaukee, is collecting back-to-school supplies for kids that otherwise would not be able to afford them.
Some would have to do without altogether.
'Notes' is sponsored by Rait Commercial, LLC, which owns and tends to the property.
Assistant property manager Sherry Summers is spearheading the drive to collect supplies during the month of August at the Henry S. Reuss Plaza on 3rd & Wisconsin.
Each Thursday during the month, concert attendees are encouraged to bring back-to-school supplies for needy kids.
Pens, pencils, notebooks, paper, hi-lighters, markers, folders...the list is endless it seems and it is not cheap.
The Walgreens right across the street which has an ample selection.
Or you can fill the coffer with cash to help defray the cost of filling this basic and most pressing need.
A donation of supplies or cash earns a ticket for a prize drawing to be held on September 4.
The Blue had a client donate 100 backpacks that are just waiting to be filled up.
Back to school is right around the corner and the need has never been greater.
The renowned acoustic duo LJ & Bill, DJ & The Blusers, Val Sigal, Jim Schutte and Jayme Dawicki are on tap to close out this fun series.
